Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is
available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale
at half price, they could be considered
In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether GVIC Communications is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as GVIC Communications has not provided consistent financial data, and the stock also has no analyst forecast or coverage, its intrinsic value cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst consensus cash flow predictions.
This is quite a rare situation as 89% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have a valuation analysis. You can see them here.
Show me the analysis anyway
INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for
GVIC Communications. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being
unavailable. The share price is
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for
it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avocados) increasing
when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.
The amount the stock market is willing to pay for
is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.
Price based on past earnings
GVIC Communications's earnings available for a low price, and how does
this compare to other companies in the same industry?
When valuing a company like this, investors focus more on how they perceive the size of the opportunity, the company's ability to deliver and scale, and the strength of the team. While we are not analysing this type of data at the moment, if you don’t know where to start, we recommend reading through GVIC Communications's regulatory filings and announcements.
GVIC Communications's earnings are expected to grow significantly at over 20% yearly.
Unable to determine if GVIC Communications is high growth as no revenue estimate data is available.

predicting what actually occurred. We also show the highest and lowest estimates
looking forward to see if there is a wide range.

Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.5x debt.
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t
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.
