Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

CMH.TO 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.

CMH.TO has lost $33.88 of cash for every $100 invested.

Very Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

CMH.TO has generated a $16.11 loss for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Poor Business Performance over the past 10 years

CMH.TO'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.

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

Very Strong Balance Sheet

CMH.TO has more Cash than its Total Liabilities, resulting in $0.15 Net Cash per share. In other words, if you buy CMH.TO today, the price you're paying for shares is actually $3.92 because $0.15 of Cash is included in the current share price. This much Cash is very healthy. It can help CMH.TO sustain itself in the face of any economic turmoil and makes a stock buyback more of a possibility.

Low or No Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

CMH.TO has either been retaining a small amount of their earnings or has done so inconsistently. A lack of consistency could be due to CMH.TO operating at a loss or them having such a strong economic moat they feel comfortable spending profits on growth. Be wary of future prospects and if applicable, inspect the moat's sustainability.

Loss Making Entity over the past 10 years

CMH.TO has been unable to maintain profitability. It's Costs of Sales have outstripped Revenue consistently. This is a huge red flag, unless the company has been investing heavily for the future. However, even that is dubious since accurately predicting the future of a company like that is extremely difficult.

$8.04 of every $100 of Revenue have been a loss, on average over the past 10 years.

Inconsistent Gross Profit Margins over the past 10 years

CMH.TO has good gross profit margins, however inconsistency of these margins is a cause for concern. Look at reasons for this inconsistency to determine the likelihood of future sustainability.

$39.34 of every $100 worth of sales have been Gross Profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Medium Capital Intensity over the past 10 years

CMH.TO has used a reasonable amount of their financial resources to invest in facilities and equipment required to produce its goods and services. This isn't perfect, but it shouldn't be an area of concern unless this number is strongly trending upwards.

38.95% 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

CMH.TO 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.
