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
In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether Netlist is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as Netlist 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
Netlist. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being
unavailable. The share price is
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
is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.
Price based on past earnings
Netlist's earnings available for a low price, and how does
this compare to other companies in the same industry?
Netlist has negative assets, we can't compare the value of its assets to the DE Electronic industry average.
Examine Netlist'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.
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. While we are not analysing this type of data at the moment, if you don’t know where to start, we recommend reading through Netlist's regulatory filings and announcements.
Unable to determine if Netlist is high growth as no earnings estimate data is available.
Netlist's revenue is expected to grow significantly at over 20% yearly.
Past and Future Earnings per Share
The accuracy of the analysts who estimate the future performance data can
be gauged below. We look back 3 years and see if they were any good at
predicting what actually occurred. We also show the highest and lowest estimates
looking forward to see if there is a wide range.

unreasonable CEO compensation, how long the team and board of directors have
been around for and insider trading.
