Value

 Is U.S. Gold 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 U.S. Gold. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is $1.0299.
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 U.S. Gold's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Future Performance

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

Next steps:

  1. Examine U.S. Gold's financial health to determine how well-positioned it is against times of financial stress by looking at its level of debt over time and how much cash it has left.
  2. U.S. Gold'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 Materials companies here
  3. U.S. Gold's competitive advantages and company strategy can generally be found in its financial reports archived here.
  4. Use fundamentals to screen for another stock to analyse from our database of over 75,000 companies worldwide

Future performance checks
We assess U.S. Gold's future performance by looking at:
  1. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to beat the low risk savings rate, plus a premium to keep pace with inflation?
  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)
  4. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to be above 20%? (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.
U.S. Gold has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note 1: We use GAAP Net Income Excluding Exceptional Items for our Earnings in all our calculations.

Past Performance

  How has U.S. Gold 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 U.S. Gold's growth in the last year to its industry (Metals and Mining).
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.
  • U.S. Gold does not make a profit and their year on year earnings growth rate was negative over the past 5 years.
  • Unable to compare U.S. Gold's 1-year earnings growth to the 5-year average as it is not currently profitable.
  • Unable to compare U.S. Gold's 1-year growth to the US Metals and Mining industry average as it is not currently profitable.

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 U.S. Gold has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if U.S. Gold has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the US Metals and Mining industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if U.S. Gold improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

Past performance checks
We assess U.S. Gold's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:

  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (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.
U.S. Gold has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Health

 How is U.S. Gold'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 U.S. Gold's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • U.S. Gold is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • U.S. Gold's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of U.S. Gold'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.
  • U.S. Gold has no debt, it does not need to be 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.

CASH RUNWAY ANALYSIS

For companies that have on average been loss making in the past we assess whether they have at least 1 year of cash runway.

  • U.S. Gold has less than a year of cash runway based on current free cash flow.
  • U.S. Gold has less than a year of cash runway if free cash flow continues to grow at historical rates of 39% each year.
