Value

 Is Land Securities 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
Here we compare the current share price of Land Securities Group 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 OTCPK:LDSC.Y using 6x Analysts Estimates of Net Asset Value Model

In the case of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) like Land Securities Group our preference is to use estimates of Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO) to calculate the intrinsic value using a discounted cash flow calculation.

However, in the case of Land Securities Group these estimates are not available, instead we are able to use analyst estimates of Net Asset Value (NAV).

The Net Asset Value (NAV) model is the most common intrinsic valuation methodology for REITs. The underlying idea is that you can value a REIT by valuing its real estate assets and then adjusting for its other assets and subtracting liabilities.

See our documentation to learn about this calculation.

  • Land Securities Group's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a substantial discount (< 40%).

The amount the stock market is willing to pay for Land Securities Group'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.
  • It is difficult to establish if Land Securities Group has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Land Securities Group has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the US REITs industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Land Securities Group improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

Health

 How is Land Securities Group'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 Land Securities Group's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Land Securities Group's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Land Securities Group's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Land Securities Group'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 not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.1x 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.
