INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
Here we compare the current share price of NEXON 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.

Current Discount Checks
For NEXON to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • NEXON's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • NEXON's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not 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 NEXON's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

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.
  • NEXON has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • NEXON used its assets more efficiently than the US Entertainment industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • NEXON has improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess NEXON'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 Entertainment 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.
NEXON has a total score of 4/6, see the detailed checks below.

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

Health

 How is NEXON'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 NEXON's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • NEXON is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • NEXON's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of NEXON'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.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 203.5x 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.
