Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

Very Poor Cash Return on Invested Capital over the past 5 years

CHLN has failed to generate positive returns on 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.

CHLN has lost $5.75 of cash for every $100 invested.

Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

CHLN has only generated $2.30 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Poor Business Performance over the past 10 years

CHLN'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.

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

Weak Balance Sheet

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

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

Competitive Industry over the past 10 years

CHLN is likely operating in an industry with medium to low barriers to entry. This may mean that CHLN doesn't have a characteristic that's hard to replicate, such as exclusive distribution, branding or the ability to keep costs low. If Gross Margins are at least satisfactory, it's likely that CHLN invests heavily in R&D and Sales, General & Administrative expenses.

Only $9.08 of every $100 of Revenue have been profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Weak Pricing Power over the past 10 years

CHLN is likely in a highly competitive industry, due to low barriers to entry. It's because of this, that CHLN 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.

High Capital Intensity over the past 10 years

CHLN 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.

60.93% of Profits are being spent on Capital Expenditures, like Property, Plant, & Equipment, required to run the business.

History of Stock Buybacks over the past 10 years

CHLN 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.
