Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

BUD 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.

BUD has only created $8.37 of cash for every $100 invested.

Excellent Return on Equity over the past 5 years

Over the past 5 years, BUD has generated strong profits with money shareholders have invested. This is considered one of the best indicators of quality management. Beware of extremely high Return on Equity (> 50%) as this is often unsustainable.

BUD has generated $21.11 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Excellent Business Performance over the past 10 years

BUD has been able to maintain profitability in good times and bad. This could mean BUD has an extremely strong business or has the ability to scale down costs when needed. This should be a fairly resilient business, but double check for future sustainability by looking at its Risk Factors in the Annual Report.

BUD has created positive free cash flow for 9 or more of the past 10 years.

Weak Balance Sheet

BUD's financial position is not ideal. The key is to check whether BUD 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

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

Inconsistent Net Profit Margins over the past 10 years

BUD potentially has a competitive advantage, however inconsistent profit margins are a cause for concern. Look at reasons for this inconsistency to determine the likelihood of future sustainability.

$18.25 of every $100 of Revenue have been pure profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Strong Pricing Power over the past 10 years

BUD 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.

$58.06 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

BUD 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.

66.73% 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

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

We're neutral on this. It's not necessarily good or bad that BUD hasn't initiated a stock buyback.
