Growth Rate Assumed by Market

We did a reverse valuation to calculate the growth rate the market is assuming for BRKL 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 BRKL'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

BRKL 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.

BRKL has only created $- of cash for every $100 invested.

Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

BRKL has only generated $6.29 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Poor Business Performance over the past 10 years

BRKL's inability to produce positive free cash flow for the majority of the past 10 years is concerning. It should be a red flag, since this company does not have a track record of delivering results for shareholders. This could be due to poor management or the nature of its business.

BRKL has been losing money for the majority of the past 10 years.

Consistent Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

BRKL has consistently retained profits. This may put BRKL 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, BRKL can greatly improve their long-term economic picture.

Highly Competitive Industry over the past 10 years

It's likely that BRKL is in an industry with low barriers to entry, spurring high competition. If Gross Margins are at least satisfactory, it's likely BRKL invests heavily in R&D and Sales, General & Administrative expenses.

Only $- of every $100 of Revenue have been profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Weak Pricing Power over the past 10 years

BRKL is likely in a highly competitive industry, due to low barriers to entry. It's because of this, that BRKL has been unable to raise prices and increase their profitability. This puts them in a poor position if inflation becomes an issue, as they would struggle to pass higher costs onto consumers.

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

Low Capital Intensity over the past 10 years

BRKL has consistently used a small portion of their Net Income buying new equipment or investing in new facilities. This indicates that BRKL may require minimal investment to stay competitive. This leaves them with extra money to spend on growing their business and potentially buying back stock.

-% 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

BRKL has consistently distributed a dividend for at least the past 10 years. Such a long dividend history suggests BRKL 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

BRKL 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.
