Current Discount Checks
For Booking Holdings to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Booking Holdings's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a moderate discount (< 20%).
  • Booking Holdings's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a substantial discount (< 40%).
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET

Health

 How is Booking Holdings'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 Booking Holdings's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Booking Holdings is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Booking Holdings's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Booking Holdings'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.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 1.1x 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.
