Value

 Is PyroGenesis Canada 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.

In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether PyroGenesis Canada is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as PyroGenesis Canada 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. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for PyroGenesis Canada. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is CA$0.6.
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 PyroGenesis Canada's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  2. When valuing a company like this, investors focus more on how they perceive the size of the opportunity, the company's ability to deliver and scale, and the strength of the team.

Future Performance

 How is PyroGenesis Canada 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 PyroGenesis Canada 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 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.
  • It is difficult to establish if PyroGenesis Canada has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) due to its liabilities exceeding its assets.
  • It is difficult to establish if PyroGenesis Canada has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the CA Commercial Services industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if PyroGenesis Canada improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

  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)

Health

 How is PyroGenesis Canada'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 PyroGenesis Canada's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • PyroGenesis Canada's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • PyroGenesis Canada's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of PyroGenesis Canada'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.
  • PyroGenesis Canada has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets) therefore debt is not 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.
