SUN Value

 Is Suntech 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.

In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether Suntech is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as Suntech 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 Suntech. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is PLN0.15.
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 Suntech's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

SUN Future Performance

 How is Suntech 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 Suntech 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!

Performance in 3 years
In the same way as past performance we look at the future estimated return (profit) compared to the available funds. We do this looking forward 3 years.
  • Unable to establish if Suntech will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Suntech's future outlook can be gauged by looking at industry trends and market size, and determining how well-positioned the company is compared to its competitors. Take a look at other high-growth Software companies here
  2. Suntech's competitive advantages and company strategy can generally be found in its financial reports archived here.
  3. Use fundamentals to screen for another stock to analyse from our database of over 75,000 companies worldwide

Future performance checks
We assess Suntech's future performance by looking at:

  2. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to beat the average growth rate in earnings of the Poland market? (1 check)
  3. Is the annual revenue growth rate expected to beat the average growth rate in revenue of the Europe market? (1 check)

  5. Is the annual revenue growth rate expected to be above 20%? (1 check)

SUN Past Performance

  How has Suntech performed over the past 5 years?

In this section we usually display a company’s past earnings and revenues to help investors visualise the trend through time. We also gauge the company’s performance by benchmarking its returns and growth to its industry peers and the wider market. However, Suntech has not provided sufficient past data to assess its track record.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have historical data. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

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 Suntech's growth in the last year to its industry (Software).
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.
  • Insufficient past earnings data to establish if Suntech's year on year earnings growth rate was positive over the past 5 years.
  • Unable to compare Suntech's 1-year growth to the 5-year average as past earnings data has not been reported.
  • Unable to compare Suntech's 1-year growth to the PL Software industry average as past earnings data has not been reported.

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.
  • Unable to establish if Suntech has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year as no Return on Equity data is available.
  • Unable to establish if Suntech has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the PL Software industry average (Return on Assets) as past financial data has not been reported.
  • Unable to establish if Suntech improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) due to insufficient past data.

Next steps:

  1. Past financial records are usually unavailable for companies that have just been established or recently publicly listed, which makes them inherently riskier. Take a look at a list of well-established companies here.
  2. Use fundamentals to screen for another stock to analyse from our database of over 75,000 companies worldwide

SUN Health

 How is Suntech'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 Suntech's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Unable to compare short term assets to short term liabilities as Suntech has not reported sufficient balance sheet data.
  • Unable to establish if Suntech's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets as Suntech has not reported sufficient balance sheet data.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Suntech'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.
  • Unable to establish if Suntech has a high level of physical assets or inventory without balance sheet data.
  • Unable to verify if debt is covered by short term assets as Suntech has not reported sufficient balance sheet data.
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.
