DNB Value

 Is DNB 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 DNB 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.
Raw Data

Below are the data sources, inputs and calculation used to determine the intrinsic value for DNB.

OB:DNB Discounted Cash Flow Data Sources

An important part of a discounted cash flow is the discount rate, below we explain how it has been calculated.

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for OB:DNB using Excess Returns Model Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for DNB 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.

OB:DNB Value of Excess Returns
Calculation Result
Excess Returns = (Stable Return on equity – Cost of equity) (Book Value of Equity per share)
= (11.3% – 9.21%) * NOK144.96)
NOK3.03
Terminal Value of Excess Returns = Excess Returns / (Cost of Equity - Expected Growth Rate)
= NOK3.03 / (9.21% - 1.76%)
NOK40.68
Value of Equity = Book Value per share + Terminal Value of Excess Returns
= NOK144.96 + NOK40.68

Intrinsic value
13%
Share price is NOK161.9 vs Future cash flow value of NOK185.64
Current Discount Checks
For DNB to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • DNB's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a moderate discount (< 20%).
  • DNB's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not 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 DNB'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.
  • DNB has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • DNB used its assets more efficiently than the NO Banks industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Unable to establish if DNB improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) due to insufficient past data.

Past performance checks
We assess DNB's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:
  1. Has earnings increased in past 5 years? (1 check)
  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Banks industry? (1 check)
  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)
  4. Is the Return on Equity (ROE) higher than 20%? (1 check)
  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (1 check)
  6. Has the Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) increased from 3 years ago? (1 check)
The above checks will fail if the company has reported a loss in the most recent earnings report. Some checks require at least 3 or 5 years worth of data.
DNB has a total score of 3/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note: We use GAAP Net Income excluding extraordinary items in all our calculations.

DNB Health

 How is DNB's financial position? (This company is analysed differently as a bank or financial institution)

This company is a bank or financial institution.

Fundamentally a bank's business is based upon borrowing and lending money, for this reason they typically have high levels of debt and we analyse them differently.
Net Worth
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of DNB'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.
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.
