Value

 Is Electronic Control Security 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.

In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether Electronic Control Security is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as Electronic Control Security has not provided consistent financial data, and the stock also has no analyst forecast or coverage, its intrinsic value cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst consensus cash flow predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 89% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have a valuation analysis. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Electronic Control Security. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is $0.06433.
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 Electronic Control Security's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Future Performance

 How is Electronic Control Security 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 Electronic Control Security 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.

  2. Electronic Control Security'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 Tech companies here

Past Performance

  How has Electronic Control Security performed over the past 5 years?

In this section we usually display a company’s past earnings and revenues to help investors visualise the trend through time. We also gauge the company’s performance by benchmarking its returns and growth to its industry peers and the wider market. However, Electronic Control Security has not provided sufficient past data to assess its track record.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have historical data. You can see them here.

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.
  • Unable to establish if Electronic Control Security has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year as no Return on Equity data is available.
  • Unable to establish if Electronic Control Security has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the US Electronic industry average (Return on Assets) as past financial data has not been reported.
  • Unable to establish if Electronic Control Security improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) due to insufficient past data.

Next steps:

  1. When a company lacks a financial track record, its management’s track record becomes important. Corporate governance also plays an important role in a young business as board members are seen as highly-experienced leaders to help steer the company into the future. Take a look at Electronic Control Security's management and board experience and expertise to assess their ability to deliver on their strategic promises.
  2. While we do not consider unaudited financials to be a reliable enough to include in our analysis, you can access them on the OTC Markets Website. If you are looking for more of a qualitative research into the company, you can access Electronic Control Security's filings and announcements here.
  3. Past financial records are usually unavailable for companies that have just been established or recently publicly listed, which makes them inherently riskier. Take a look at a list of well-established companies here.

Health

 How is Electronic Control Security's financial health and their level of debt?

In this section we usually analyse Electronic Control Security's finance health to determine how well-positioned it is against times of financial distress, in particular, its ability to manage its cash and debt levels. Electronic Control Security has not provided adequate balance sheet data, its financial health cannot be properly assessed as it.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have financial information. You can see them here.

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 Electronic Control Security's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.

  • Unable to establish if Electronic Control Security has a high level of physical assets or inventory without balance sheet data.
  • Unable to verify if debt is covered by short term assets as Electronic Control Security has not reported sufficient balance sheet data.
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.
