Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for TSX:SEC using Excess Returns Model Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Senvest Capital is arrived at using the Excess Return Model. This approach is used for finance firms where free cash flow is difficult to estimate.

In the Excess Return Model the value of a firm can be written as the sum of capital invested currently in the firm and the present value of excess returns that the firm expects to make in the future.

The model is sensitive to the Return on Equity of the company versus the Cost of Equity, how these are calculated is detailed below the main calculation.

Note the calculations below are per share.

See our documentation to learn about this calculation.

TSX:SEC Value of Excess Returns
Calculation Result
Excess Returns = (Stable Return on equity – Cost of equity) (Book Value of Equity per share)
= (11.5% – 6.72%) * CA$335.20)
CA$16.13
Terminal Value of Excess Returns = Excess Returns / (Cost of Equity - Expected Growth Rate)
= CA$16.13 / (6.72% - 1.44%)
CA$305.29
Value of Equity = Book Value per share + Terminal Value of Excess Returns
= CA$335.20 + CA$305.29

Future Performance

 How is Senvest Capital expected to perform in the next 1 to 3 years based on estimates from 0 analysts?

In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit. But as Senvest Capital has not provided enough past data and has no analyst forecast, its future earnings cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have past financial data. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

The future performance of a company is measured in the same way as past performance, by looking at estimated growth and how much profit it is expected to make.

Future estimates come from professional analysts. Just like forecasting the weather, they don’t always get it right!

Health

 How is Senvest Capital's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Senvest Capital's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Senvest Capital is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Senvest Capital's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Senvest Capital's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 27.8x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
