SSU Value

 Is Samsung Electronics 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 Samsung Electronics 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.

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

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for WBAG:SSU using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Samsung Electronics 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.

Share price is €888.25 vs Future cash flow value of €3028.15
Current Discount Checks
For Samsung Electronics to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Samsung Electronics's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Samsung Electronics'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 Samsung Electronics's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

*GAAP earnings excluding extraordinary items.

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.
  • Samsung Electronics has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Samsung Electronics used its assets more efficiently than the Europe Tech industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Samsung Electronics has significantly improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess Samsung Electronics'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 Tech 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.
Samsung Electronics 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.

SSU Health

 How is Samsung Electronics'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 Samsung Electronics's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Samsung Electronics is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Samsung Electronics's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Samsung Electronics'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.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 11.9x 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.
