Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

CCL 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.

CCL has only created $4.15 of cash for every $100 invested.

Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

CCL has only generated $6.92 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Excellent Business Performance over the past 10 years

CCL has been able to maintain profitability in good times and bad. This could mean CCL 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.

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

Good Balance Sheet

CCL's Total Assets double Total Liabilities. Its financial position is adequate. Remember to check Shareholders' Equity to see if it's stable or growing. It's one of the best measures of whether a company is creating value for shareholders.

Consistent Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

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

Potential Competitive Advantage over the past 10 years

CCL potentially has a competitive advantage. This could be strong branding, the ability to keep costs low, or some other characteristic that is hard to replicate. Look at its future prospects to determine sustainability and whether the economic moat will strengthen.

$12.51 of every $100 of Revenue have been pure profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Satisfactory Pricing Power over the past 10 years

Consistency is vital. CCL has been able to maintain gross margins fairly consistently, which is a strong indication of their ability to raise prices with inflation. This potentially leaves flexibility in inflationary environments to raise prices on consumers and maintain profitability.

$37.14 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

CCL 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.

162.10% 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

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

Strong History of Stock Buybacks over the past 10 years

CCL has a strong 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.

CJKnox is correct. It's a so-so stock, but there are better opportunities out there if you look for them. I would say CCL is probably fairly valued.

CCL is doing fine, not great but fine, considering the economic climate and considering that they've weathered many economic storms before, they are a good investment......for the long term investor.
