Valuation

Is St George Mining undervalued compared to its fair value and its price relative to the market?


In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether St George Mining is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as St George Mining has not provided consistent financial data, and the stock also has no analyst forecast or coverage, its intrinsic value cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst consensus cash flow predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 89% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have a valuation analysis.


Next Steps

  • Take a look at our analysis of SGQ’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.
  • When valuing a company like this, investors focus more on how they perceive the potential returns from the core activities, the size of each contract's opportunity, and the capacity of the team. While we are not analysing this type of data at the moment, if you don’t know where to start, we recommend reading through St George Mining regulatory filings.
