BQE Value

 Is BQE Water 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
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for BQE Water. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is CA$6.55.
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 BQE Water's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

BQE Future Performance

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

Next steps:

  1. Examine BQE Water's financial health to determine how well-positioned it is against times of financial stress by looking at its level of debt over time and how much cash it has left.
  2. BQE Water'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 Commercial Services companies here
  3. BQE Water'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

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.
  • BQE Water has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • BQE Water used its assets less efficiently than the CA Commercial Services industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • It is difficult to establish if BQE Water improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

BQE Health

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • BQE Water is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • BQE Water has no long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of BQE Water'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

The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • BQE Water has no debt, it does not need to be 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.
