Is it a good company at a reasonable price? I found this an interesting small cap and invested in it. I still find it interesting. It has certainly been able to grow it s Revenue and it is Revenue growth that ultimately can provide for earnings, and dividend growth. A problem is the debt load. The stock price seems relatively cheap.
I own this stock of Stingray Digital Group Inc (TSX-RAY.A, OTC-NONE). I was following Newfoundland Capital Corp and Stingray Bought them out. Also, I read the blub on CEO, Eric Boyko. The site says he is an entrepreneur with nearly two decades of experience with start-ups. Mr. Boyko has extensive expertise in early stage business innovations. The financial year end is March 31 each year, so I am looking at the financial year ending March 31, 2023.
When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed I have had this stock for 5 years and so far, it has been a loser. I have a total loss of 7.32% with a capital loss of 11.49T and dividends of 4.17%. This stock was bought with my fooling around money. However, Revenue, Earnings and Dividends are growing so this is a positive.

The current dividend yield is good with dividend growth suspended but growth moderate. The current dividend yield is good (5% to 6% ranges) at 5.91%.

The most important Dividend Payout Ratios (DPR) are for AEPS and CFPS and they are good. The DPR for 2023 for Earnings per Share (EPS) is 70% with 5 year coverage at 95%.

Debt Ratios show that they have too much debt. The Long Term Debt/Market Cap Ratio for 2023 is too high at 0.93 and currently at 1.08, and it is to do with rising debt and fall stock price. The Intangible and Goodwill Ratios are too high also at 1.70 and 1.98, which means these are higher than the market cap. However, they include the Broadcast License and if ignore than they are still high, but better at 0.87 and 1.01. The current one is high at 1.01 because of fall stock price.
The Liquidity Ratio is low at 0.86 and is better at 1.30 if we add in Cash Flow after dividends, but still lower than what I would like which is a ratio of 1.50 or higher. The Debt Ratio is fine at 1.47. The Leverage Debt/Equity Ratios are too high at 3.13 and 2.13. I prefer these below 3.00 and 2.00, respectively.
