6 Comments on “Stock In Focus – TAM Stock Screener – SciPlay Corp (NASDAQ: SCPL)”

  1. Analysis ignores minority interest, which I think takes a big chunk out of the actual fcf yield. Are these computer generated, or is a human named johnny hopkins actually researching these?

    1. The data is computer generated and I do my own analysis from there. By way of comparison Morningstar has TTM Free Cash Flow of $181.5, GuruFocus has $181.5M, and Yahoo has $181.5M. I recorded $182M in the report, which I rounded up.

      1. Exactly. But I think you need to include the class B as well. (or reduce the cash flow to the proportionate share of the A’s). BTW this is not a criticism – just trying to be of help! (But I think Sajid and I are both talking about the same issue.

  2. This thing has a strange structure with Class A and B shares. The B shares have the economic majority but in theory no control. I have not read the S-1 to work out exactly why. Probably a regulatory reason. In any event it seems the EV & Market Cap you have used are not comparable to Operating Earnings you have used. I think the “actual” market cap is more like $2bn.

    1. According to the company’s latest 10Q, the company has Class A Common Stock: 24,383,761. The current share price is $16.25. That equates to $396M.
