QEPC Value

 Is Q.E.P 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 Q.E.P. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is $24.85.
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 Q.E.P's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Future performance checks
We assess Q.E.P's future performance by looking at:

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

  5. Is the annual revenue growth rate expected to be above 20%? (1 check)
  6. Is the Return on Equity in 3 years expected to be over 20%? (1 check)
Some of the above checks will fail if the company is expected to be loss making in the relevant year.
Q.E.P has a total score of 3/6, see the detailed checks below.

QEPC Past Performance

  How has Q.E.P performed over the past 5 years?

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 Q.E.P's growth in the last year to its industry (Consumer Durables).
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.
  • Q.E.P's year on year earnings growth rate was negative over the past 5 years and the most recent earnings are below average.
  • Q.E.P's 1-year earnings growth is negative, it can't be compared to the 5-year average.
  • Q.E.P's 1-year earnings growth is negative, it can't be compared to the US Consumer Durables industry average.
Earnings and Revenue History

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.
  • Q.E.P has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Q.E.P used its assets less efficiently than the US Consumer Durables industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Q.E.P's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess Q.E.P's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:
  1. Has earnings increased in past 5 years? (1 check)
  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Consumer Durables industry? (1 check)
  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)
  4. Is the Return on Equity (ROE) higher than 20%? (1 check)
  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (1 check)
  6. Has the Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) increased from 3 years ago? (1 check)
The above checks will fail if the company has reported a loss in the most recent earnings report. Some checks require at least 3 or 5 years worth of data.
Q.E.P has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note: We use GAAP Net Income excluding extraordinary items in all our calculations.

QEPC Health

 How is Q.E.P'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 Q.E.P's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Q.E.P is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Q.E.P's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Q.E.P'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 2.5x 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.

QEPC Dividends

 What is Q.E.P's current dividend yield, its reliability and sustainability?

Dividends are regular cash payments to you from the company, similar to a bank paying you interest on a savings account.
Annual Dividend Income
Dividend payments
0%
Current annual income from Q.E.P dividends.
If you bought $2,000 of Q.E.P shares you are expected to receive $0 in your first year as a dividend.
Dividend Amount
Here we look how much dividend is being paid, if any. Is it above what you can get in a savings account? It is up there with the best dividend paying companies?
  • Unable to evaluate Q.E.P's dividend yield against the bottom 25% of dividend payers as the company has not reported any payouts.
  • Unable to evaluate Q.E.P's dividend against the top 25% market benchmark as the company has not reported any payouts.
Annualized Historical and Future Dividends
It is important to see if the dividend for a company is stable, and not wildly increasing/decreasing each year. This graph shows you the historical rate to count toward your assessment of the stock.

We also check to see if the dividend has increased in the past 10 years.
