ALAQU Value

 Is Aquila 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 Aquila. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is €5.65.
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 Aquila's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

ALAQU Future Performance

 How is Aquila 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 Aquila 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!

Performance in 3 years
In the same way as past performance we look at the future estimated return (profit) compared to the available funds. We do this looking forward 3 years.
  • Unable to establish if Aquila will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Examine Aquila's financial health to determine how well-positioned it is against times of financial stress by looking at its level of debt over time and how much cash it has left.
  2. Aquila's future outlook can be gauged by looking at industry trends and market size, and determining how well-positioned the company is compared to its competitors. Take a look at other high-growth Commercial Services companies here
  3. Aquila's competitive advantages and company strategy can generally be found in its financial reports archived here.
  4. Use fundamentals to screen for another stock to analyse from our database of over 75,000 companies worldwide

ALAQU Health

 How is Aquila'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 Aquila's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Aquila is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Aquila has no long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Aquila'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 4499.6x 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.

ALAQU News

Simply Wall St News

Here's What Aquila SA's (EPA:ALAQU) P/E Is Telling Us

The formula for price to earnings is: Price to Earnings Ratio = Price per Share ÷ Earnings per Share (EPS) Or for Aquila: P/E of 17.58 = €6.8 ÷ €0.39 (Based on the trailing twelve months to December 2018.) Is A High Price-to-Earnings Ratio Good? … A higher P/E ratio means that buyers have to pay a higher price for each €1 the company has earned over the last year. … Since Aquila holds net cash of €651k, it can spend on growth, justifying a higher P/E ratio than otherwise.

Simply Wall St -

Why You Should Like Aquila SA’s (EPA:ALAQU) ROCE

The formula for calculating the return on capital employed is: Return on Capital Employed = Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) ÷ (Total Assets - Current Liabilities) Or for Aquila: 0.39 = €882k ÷ (€8.1m - €5.9m) (Based on the trailing twelve months to December 2018.) So, Aquila has an ROCE of 39%. … Due to the way ROCE is calculated, a high level of current liabilities makes a company look as though it has less capital employed, and thus can (sometimes unfairly) boost the ROCE. … Aquila boasts an attractive ROCE, even after considering the boost from high current liabilities.
