Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

COO 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.

COO has only created $7.06 of cash for every $100 invested.

Satisfactory Return on Equity over the past 5 years

COO has generated adequate returns with capital that shareholders have invested. This is sufficient and implies that management performance has been good.

COO has generated $10.43 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Good Business Performance over the past 10 years

It's likely COO has been unable to maintain profitability in tough economic times, making it a somewhat cyclical business. The other possibility is COO has expended significant capital on items such as property, plant and equipment in specific years. Look for correlations.

COO has created positive free cash flow for 7 or 8 of the past 10 years.

Good Balance Sheet

COO'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

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

Growing Competitive Advantage over the past 10 years

COO has a growing competitive advantage. This could be due to 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 continue to strengthen.

$11.43 of every $100 of Revenue have been pure profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Strong Pricing Power over the past 10 years

COO 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.

$59.75 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

COO 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.

85.59% 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

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

COO 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.
