ABM Value

 Is African Battery Metals 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 African Battery Metals. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is £0.00425.
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 African Battery Metals's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

ABM Future Performance

 How is African Battery Metals 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 African Battery Metals 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!

  • It is difficult to establish if African Battery Metals has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the GB Metals and Mining industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if African Battery Metals improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.
