SLS Value

 Is SELLAS Life Sciences Group 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 SELLAS Life Sciences Group. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is $0.8.
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 SELLAS Life Sciences Group's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.
