INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
Here we compare the current share price of I.D. Systems 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.
Raw Data    Our intrinsic value calculation method has changed recently, learn more here.

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for NasdaqGM:IDSY using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for I.D. Systems 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.

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 I.D. Systems has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if I.D. Systems has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the US Electronic industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if I.D. Systems 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 I.D. Systems's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:

  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.

Health

 How is I.D. Systems'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 I.D. Systems's finances.

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