Are the stocklists and valuations in the portal in real time?

What is Valstox?


Valstox is an abbreviation for "Value Stock Extraction". Valstox is a software as a service (SaaS) that will provide valuations across entire stock exchanges to the investment industry to list the most undervalued companies for suitable value investing strategies.




The latest Q2 earnings announcements not shown?


Valstox conducts a conservative discounted cashflow valuation assessing sustainable annual earnings over a 5 year period. It is irresponsible to do quarterly earnings, responding to short term influences in the market. Also this would be detrimental to long term projections for seasonal businesses. All earnings are annual earnings used in the valuation are over a 5 year period.




Looking through the valuation, some stocks don’t have a valuation and are showing zero’s, why don’t they show a valuation?


As we conduct the valuation process stocks can be halted for numerous reasons such as: - Negative earnings over a 5 year average. - Negative earnings growth over 5 year period. - Newer listings are missing earnings & price history over 5 years. - No forecast earnings due to loss making business.




Is the valuation a definitive figure?


Not quite, the discounted cashflow valuation is one of multiple maket valuation models, yet proven to be the most successful for value investing over the long term. The valuation offers a ball park figure or a range of values that the stock price should be falling in based on it's true cash earnings and intrinsic value. This is entirely quantitative analysis, and it's improtant to remember that there are many qualitative aspects that can affect a stock price.




Is every heavily undervalued stock a good investment?


It is important to take into consideration whether there are serious reasons that the stock is undervalued. The idea is to buy companies at bargain prices however, there might be a clear reason that the stock is trading below it's intrinsic value. That is an important note to take into account and consider qualitative factors.

I look for dividend yield %, why is this not displayed in Valstox?


Yes, the dividend yield is important when income investments are a high priority for you when selecting stocks. We have not showcased this figure because it is not included or a component of the discounted cashflow valuation so to avoid confusion we deliberatly left it out. Dividend yield percentage can be easily found on Google Finance once you have selected discounted stocks on Valstox's stocklists to research. Valstox is currently showing a number of high dividend paying REITs and other Investment Companies which are seriously undervalued.
