Growth Rate Assumed by Market

We did a reverse valuation to calculate the growth rate the market is assuming for ABX to be considered fairly valued at its current market price. It's useful to compare this to the growth rate we're assuming for the Growth Price.

Future Free Cash Flow Growth Rate

This is the annual growth rate we've applied to calculate ABX's Free Cash Flow for the next 10 years. To calculate it, we looked at several time periods of the last 10 years. Feel free to adjust it, but we limit the initial growth rate to 20% and slow it down over the years. Otherwise, long-term sustainability issues come into play.

Discount Rate

The discount rate is the annual rate of return an investor requires to take the risk of investing in a single stock. To account for that risk, this should be above 8-10%, as this is the avg. annual rate of return for the S&P500 over the past 100 years.

Poor Cash Return on Invested Capital over the past 5 years

ABX has been unable to consistently generate sufficient returns from its investments in buildings, projects and equipment. This could be due to poor management, lack of an economic moat or the capital intensive nature of the business.

ABX has only created $1.08 of cash for every $100 invested.

Very Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

ABX has shown an inability to deliver results for shareholders. This could be due to poor management, ABX operating in a highly competitive industry, or having a weak business in general.

ABX has generated a $28.57 loss for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Mediocre Business Performance over the past 10 years

ABX isn't a strong business and might be consistently attempting to fuel growth with debt or has trouble staying profitable. The lack of predictability in free cash flow should be concerning for the reliability of future earnings.

ABX has been unable to consistently create value for shareholders.

Weak Balance Sheet

ABX's financial position is not ideal. The key is to check whether ABX is using debt to fuel its growth and the sustainability of that tendency. Highly capital intensive businesses (see Economic Moat) follow this route, which can deeply impact the future prospects of the business.

Consistent Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

ABX has consistently retained profits. This may put ABX in a strong position to invest for the future, by buying new machinery, investing in R&D or a number of other options. By effectively using these earnings, ABX can greatly improve their long-term economic picture.

Erratic Net Profit Margins over the past 10 years

ABX has had highly erratic net profit margins which are a great cause for concern. This company may operate in a highly volatile industry, or it may just have poor performance. Look at reasons for this inconsistency to understand if there is any reason to look past it.

Strong Pricing Power over the past 10 years

ABX has maintained substantial gross margins, suggesting that they have been able to set prices without consideration of the cost of goods sold. This potentially leaves flexibility in inflationary environments to raise prices on consumers and maintain profitability.

$45.45 of every $100 worth of sales have been Gross Profit, on average over the past 10 years.

High Capital Intensity over the past 10 years

ABX spends large amounts of capital buying new equipment or investing in new facilities to stay competitive. Over the long term, those costs may have to be fuelled by debt. Look at the growth of Shareholders' Equity to see if this strategy is having a positive or negative impact.

132.19% of Profits are being spent on Capital Expenditures, like Property, Plant, & Equipment, required to run the business.

Very Strong Dividend History over the past 10 years

ABX has consistently distributed a dividend for at least the past 10 years. Such a long dividend history suggests ABX is very established in its market and that its dividend distribution is likely to continue for a significant period of time.

History of Stock Buybacks over the past 10 years

ABX has some history of delivering increased value for shareholders in the form of stock buybacks. These have helped improve financial metrics and increase each shareholders' relative ownership stake in the company, due to fewer shares outstanding and holding the same number of shares.
