ISRL Value

 Is Isramco 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 Isramco 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 NasdaqCM:ISRL using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Isramco 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 Isramco to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Isramco's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Isramco'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 Isramco's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

ISRL Future Performance

 How is Isramco 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 Isramco 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 Isramco will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Take a look at our analysis of ISRL’s management and see if the CEO’s compensation is within a reasonable range, who is on the board and if insiders have been trading lately.
  2. Isramco'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 Energy companies here
  3. Isramco'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

Future performance checks
We assess Isramco's future performance by looking at:

  2. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to beat the average growth rate in earnings of the United States of America market? (1 check)
  3. Is the annual revenue growth rate expected to beat the average growth rate in revenue of the United States of America market? (1 check)

  5. Is the annual revenue growth rate expected to be above 20%? (1 check)
  6. Is the Return on Equity in 3 years expected to be over 20%? (1 check)
Some of the above checks will fail if the company is expected to be loss making in the relevant year.
Isramco has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

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 Isramco has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) due to its liabilities exceeding its assets.
  • Isramco used its assets more efficiently than the US Oil and Gas industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Isramco has become profitable over the past 3 years. This is considered to be a significant improvement in its use of capital (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess Isramco'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 Oil and Gas 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.
Isramco 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.

ISRL Health

 How is Isramco'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 Isramco's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Isramco's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Isramco's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Isramco'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.
  • Isramco 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.

  • Irrelevant to check if Isramco's debt level has increased considering it has negative shareholder equity.
  • Debt is well covered by operating cash flow (36.1%, greater than 20% of total debt).
  • Interest payments on debt are well covered by earnings (EBIT is 3.8x coverage).

Is Isramco Inc (NASDAQ:ISRL) A Sell At Its Current PE Ratio?

Formula Price-Earnings Ratio = Price per share ÷ Earnings per share P/E Calculation for ISRL Price per share = $94.65 Earnings per share = $4.308 ∴ Price-Earnings Ratio = $94.65 ÷ $4.308 = 22x The P/E ratio isn’t a metric you view in isolation and only becomes useful when you compare it against other similar companies. … For example, if you accidentally compared lower growth firms with ISRL, then ISRL’s P/E would naturally be higher since investors would reward ISRL’s higher growth with a higher price. … Alternatively, if you inadvertently compared riskier firms with ISRL, ISRL’s P/E would again be higher since investors would reward ISRL’s lower risk with a higher price as well.
