SF3 Value

 Is STS Group undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
Here we compare the current share price of STS Group 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.

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for XTRA:SF3 using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for STS Group 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.

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

SF3 Past Performance

  How has STS Group performed over the past 5 years?

The past performance of a company can be measured by how much growth it has experienced and how much profit it makes relative to the funds and assets it has available.
Past earnings growth
Below we compare STS Group's growth in the last year to its industry (Machinery).
Past Earnings growth analysis
We also check if the company has grown in the past 5 years, and whether it has maintained that growth in the year.

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 STS Group has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if STS Group has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the DE Machinery industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if STS Group improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

SF3 Health

 How is STS Group'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 STS Group's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • STS Group is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • STS Group's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of STS Group'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 2.7x 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.
