Valuation

Is iQSTEL undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?


In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether iQSTEL is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as iQSTEL 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.


Next Steps

  • Take a look at our analysis of IQST’s management and see if the CEO’s compensation is within a reasonable range, who is on the board and if insiders have been trading lately.
