B7E Value

 Is Blue Cap 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
Here we compare the current share price of Blue Cap to its discounted cash flow analysis.value.

The discounted cash flow value is simply looking at what the company is worth today, based on estimates of how much money it is expected to make in the future.

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for DB:B7E using Excess Returns Model Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Blue Cap 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.

DB:B7E Value of Excess Returns
Calculation Result
Excess Returns = (Stable Return on equity – Cost of equity) (Book Value of Equity per share)
= (10.4% – 6.09%) * €14.37)
€0.62
Terminal Value of Excess Returns = Excess Returns / (Cost of Equity - Expected Growth Rate)
= €0.62 / (6.09% - -0.39%)

Current Discount Checks
For Blue Cap to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Blue Cap's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Blue Cap's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a substantial discount (> 40%).
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 Blue Cap's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

B7E Health

 How is Blue Cap'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 Blue Cap's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Blue Cap is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Blue Cap's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Blue Cap'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.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 1.4x 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.
