Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

Satisfactory Cash Return on Invested Capital over the past 5 years

JDSU has somewhat efficiently invested its financial resources in buildings, projects, and equipment. If CROIC is inconsistent, it's likely JDSU could be benefiting from a one-time event or has a mixed history of investing capital productively. Read the company's Annual Report to determine whether this can improve.

JDSU has created $10.18 of cash for every $100 invested.

Very Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

JDSU has generated a $0.40 loss for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Good Business Performance over the past 10 years

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

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

Strong Balance Sheet

JDSU is financially strong with Current Assets covering Total Liabilities. It's in a fairly liquid position and dependent on the amount and saleability of any inventory; it may have the financial security to survive an economic downturn.

Low or No Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

JDSU has either been retaining a small amount of their earnings or has done so inconsistently. A lack of consistency could be due to JDSU 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

JDSU 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.

$12.10 of every $100 of Revenue have been a loss, on average over the past 10 years.

Growing Pricing Power over the past 10 years

JDSU has growing gross margins, suggesting that they have been able to set higher prices without consideration of the cost of goods sold. Look at its future prospects to determine sustainability and whether the economic moat will continue to strengthen.

$37.68 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

JDSU 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.

138.60% 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

JDSU 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.
