GOCOL Value

 Is GoCo Group 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 GoCo Group 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 BATS-CHIXE:GOCOL using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for GoCo Group is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We try to start with analysts estimates of free cash flow, however if these are not available we use the most recent financial results. In the 1st stage we continue to grow the free cash flow over a 10 year period, with the growth rate trending towards the perpetual growth rate used in the 2nd stage. The 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

Note: Free cash flow to equity valuations ignore the company's cash or debt.

Current Discount Checks
For GoCo Group to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.

  • GoCo Group'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 GoCo Group's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Performance last year
We want to ensure a company is making the most of what it has available. This is done by comparing the return (profit) to a company's available funds, assets and capital.
  • It is difficult to establish if GoCo Group has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) due to its liabilities exceeding its assets.
  • GoCo Group used its assets more efficiently than the GB Online Retail industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • GoCo Group's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

GOCOL Health

 How is GoCo Group'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 GoCo Group's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • GoCo Group is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • GoCo Group's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of GoCo Group'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.
  • GoCo Group has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets) therefore debt is not covered by short term assets.
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.

  • GoCo Group has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets), this is a more serious situation compared with a high debt level.
  • Irrelevant to check if GoCo Group's debt level has increased considering it has negative shareholder equity.
  • Debt is well covered by operating cash flow (26.4%, greater than 20% of total debt).
  • Interest payments on debt are well covered by earnings (EBIT is 5.6x coverage).
