VSPC Value

 Is VIASPACE 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 VIASPACE is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as VIASPACE 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 VIASPACE. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is $0.0022.
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 VIASPACE's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

VSPC Future Performance

 How is VIASPACE 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 VIASPACE 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 VIASPACE will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Take a look at our analysis of VSPC’s management and see if the CEO’s compensation is within a reasonable range, who is on the board and if insiders have been trading lately.
  2. VIASPACE'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 Commercial Services companies here
  3. While we do not consider unaudited financials to be a reliable enough to include in our analysis, you can access them on the OTC Markets Website. If you are looking for more of a qualitative research into the company, you can access VIASPACE's filings and announcements here.

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.
  • It is difficult to establish if VIASPACE has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) due to its liabilities exceeding its assets.
  • It is difficult to establish if VIASPACE has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the US Commercial Services industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if VIASPACE improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) due to its liabilities exceeding its assets.

VSPC Health

 How is VIASPACE'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 VIASPACE's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • VIASPACE's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • VIASPACE has no long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of VIASPACE'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.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • VIASPACE has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets) therefore debt is not covered by short term assets.
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.

He has also developed a premium line of skin care and cosmetic products that help to naturally heal, protect, repair and subsequently maintain not only the damaged skin of cancer patients, but also individuals who have experienced skin damage resulting from aging, dryness, UV exposure, other illnesses and environmental pollution. Dr. Schewe has experienced first-hand the ravaging effects that radiation and chemotherapy can have on the skin and hair. He made it his personal mission to offer patients relief and restoration from the external effects of treatment during their internal fight for life. Using his practical experience as a busy oncology clinician and scientific knowledge of the deleterious effects that modern treatment can inflict on skin and hair, Dr. Schewe began testing ingredients and formulations for optimal healing efficacy. Building on his philosophy that outer beauty is the reflection of inner health, he searched for ingredients that would provide immediate nurturing on the surface-then continue working at the cellular level for sustained long-term healing. Dr. Schewe combined the highest quality pharmaceutical-grade ingredients with antioxidant-rich, globally sourced active naturals in highly effective delivery systems. Through his extensive experience in clinical cancer care, personal research and tireless product testing, Dr. Schewe eventually isolated natural Vitamin E as the one true cornerstone of healthy skin-this powerful multi-tasking ingredient is critical in the repair, maintenance and protection of damaged skin. Using advanced Vitamin E technology as the foundation, Dr. Schewe combined the highest quality pharmaceutical-grade ingredients with antioxidant-rich, globally sourced active naturals in highly effective delivery systems. He has been the Chairman of VIASPACE Inc. since October 1, 2012. Dr. Schewe serves as the Chairman of National Cancer Survivors Day at the Red Rocks Center the first Sunday of every June and that event has become a highly-anticipated and joyful tradition in Jefferson County. He has been a Director of VIASPACE Green Energy Inc. and VIASPACE Inc. since January 19, 2012. He has been a Member of Medical Advisory Board at Sensus Healthcare, Inc. since February 27, 2017. He has been named to “5280 Top Docs” multiple years and is known as a strong advocate of the personalized treatment approach for each cancer patient entrusted to his care. Dr. Schewe is a Board-Certified Radiation Oncologist and a Fellow of the American College of Radiation Oncology. Dr. Schewe received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology at the University of Missouri and his medical degree at the University of Missouri School of Medicine.
