BG Value

 Is Bunge 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
Here we compare the current share price of Bunge to its discounted cash flow analysis.value.

The discounted cash flow value is simply looking at what the company is worth today, based on estimates of how much money it is expected to make in the future.

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for NYSE:BG using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Bunge is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We try to start with analysts estimates of free cash flow, however if these are not available we use the most recent financial results. In the 1st stage we continue to grow the free cash flow over a 10 year period, with the growth rate trending towards the perpetual growth rate used in the 2nd stage. The 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

Current Discount Checks
For Bunge to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Bunge's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Bunge's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a substantial discount (> 40%).
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 Bunge's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  • Bunge has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Bunge used its assets less efficiently than the US Food industry average last year based on Return on Assets.

  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Food 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)

  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.
Bunge has a total score of 2/6, see the detailed checks below.

BG Health

 How is Bunge'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 Bunge's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Bunge is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Bunge's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Bunge'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 1.9x 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.

Are Bunge Limited’s (NYSE:BG) Returns Worth Your While?

Specifically, we're going to calculate its Return On Capital Employed (ROCE), in the hopes of getting some insight into the business. … 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 Bunge: 0.082 = US$1.0b ÷ (US$21b - US$8.1b) (Based on the trailing twelve months to March 2019.) Therefore, Bunge has an ROCE of 8.2%. … Due to the way ROCE is calculated, a high level of current liabilities makes a company look as though it has less capital employed, and thus can (sometimes unfairly) boost the ROCE.

Three Things You Should Check Before Buying Bunge Limited (NYSE:BG) For Its Dividend

Click the interactive chart for our full dividend analysis NYSE:BG Historical Dividend Yield, July 3rd 2019 Payout ratios Dividends are usually paid out of company earnings. … Dividend Growth Potential The other half of the dividend investing equation is evaluating whether earnings per share (EPS) are growing. Growing EPS can help maintain or increase the purchasing power of the dividend over the long run. It's good to see Bunge has been growing its earnings per share at 18% a year over the past 5 years. Although earnings per share are up nicely Bunge is paying out 96% of its earnings as dividends, which we feel is borderline unsustainable without extenuating circumstances. Conclusion Dividend investors should always want to know if a) a company's dividends are affordable, b) if there is a track record of consistent payments, and c) if the dividend is capable of growing. … We like that it has been delivering solid improvement in its earnings per share, and relatively consistent dividend payments.
