Value

 Is Osaka Gas 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 Osaka Gas. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is €16.196.
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 Osaka Gas's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  • Osaka Gas used its assets less efficiently than the Europe Gas Utilities industry average last year based on Return on Assets.

Health

 How is Osaka Gas'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 Osaka Gas's finances.

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