Value

 Is Groupe CIOA 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 Groupe CIOA. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is €1.
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 Groupe CIOA's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Future Performance

 How is Groupe CIOA 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 Groupe CIOA 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!

  1. Examine whether Groupe CIOA is trading at Groupe CIOA'san attractive price based on how much it is expected to earn in the future, and relative to its industry peers and the wider market.
  2. Groupe CIOA'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. Groupe CIOA's competitive advantages and company strategy can generally be found in its financial reports archived here.

Health

 How is Groupe CIOA'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 Groupe CIOA's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Groupe CIOA is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Groupe CIOA's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.

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 5.4x 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.

News

Simply Wall St News

Is Groupe CIOA's (EPA:MLCIO) Capital Allocation Ability Worth Your Time?

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 Groupe CIOA: 0.16 = €1.6m ÷ (€18m - €9.0m) (Based on the trailing twelve months to December 2018.) So, Groupe CIOA has an ROCE of 16%. … 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. … Our Take On Groupe CIOA's ROCE With a decent ROCE, the company could be interesting, but remember that the level of current liabilities make the ROCE look better.
