Value

 Is Indigo Books & Music undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

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 undervalued.
INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Indigo Books & Music. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is CA$4.125.
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
