We provide advice to complement the regular expert consensus on Gaia. Our dynamic recommendation engine utilizes a multidimensional algorithm to analyze the company's potential to grow using all technical and fundamental data available at the time.
We determine the current worth of Gaia Inc using both absolute as well as relative valuation methodologies to arrive at its intrinsic value. In general, an absolute valuation paradigm, as applied to this company, attempts to find the value of Gaia Inc based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing Gaia's financials, quarterly and monthly indicators, and related drivers such as dividends, operating cash flow, and various types of growth rates, we attempt to find the most accurate representation of Gaia's intrinsic value. In some cases, mostly for established, large-cap companies, we also incorporate more traditional valuation methods such as dividend discount, discounted cash flow, or asset-based models. As compared to an absolute model, our relative valuation model uses a comparative analysis of Gaia. We calculate exposure to Gaia's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to Gaia's related companies.
