Here we compare the current share price of Standard Bank 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 JSE:SBK using Excess Returns Model Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Standard Bank Group 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.

JSE:SBK Value of Excess Returns
Calculation Result
Excess Returns = (Stable Return on equity – Cost of equity) (Book Value of Equity per share)
= (17.3% – 10.28%) * ZAR116.29)
ZAR8.19
Terminal Value of Excess Returns = Excess Returns / (Cost of Equity - Expected Growth Rate)
= ZAR8.19 / (10.28% - 2.73%)
ZAR108.52
Value of Equity = Book Value per share + Terminal Value of Excess Returns
= ZAR116.29 + ZAR108.52

Share price is ZAR174.76 vs Future cash flow value of ZAR224.81
Current Discount Checks

  • Standard Bank Group's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Standard Bank Group'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 Standard Bank Group's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  • Standard Bank Group has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Standard Bank Group used its assets more efficiently than the ZA Banks industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Unable to establish if Standard Bank Group improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) due to insufficient past data.

 How is Standard Bank Group'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 Standard Bank 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.
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.
