1742 Value

 Is HPC Holdings 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 HPC Holdings. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is HK$0.219.
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 HPC Holdings's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

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.

Simply Wall St News

Should You Like HPC Holdings Limited’s (HKG:1742) High Return On Capital Employed?

Author Edwin Whiting says to be careful when comparing the ROCE of different businesses, since 'No two businesses are exactly alike.' How Do You Calculate Return On Capital Employed? … Analysts use this formula to calculate return on capital employed: Return on Capital Employed = Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) ÷ (Total Assets - Current Liabilities) Or for HPC Holdings: 0.20 = S$16m ÷ (S$139m - S$57m) (Based on the trailing twelve months to October 2018.) Therefore, HPC Holdings has an ROCE of 20%. … The ROCE equation subtracts current liabilities from capital employed, so a company with a lot of current liabilities appears to have less capital employed, and a higher ROCE than otherwise.
