Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

ODP 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.

ODP has only created $2.28 of cash for every $100 invested.

Very Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

ODP has generated a $1.06 loss for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Good Business Performance over the past 10 years

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

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

Weak Balance Sheet

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

Low or No Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

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

ODP 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.

$0.97 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

ODP 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.

$33.94 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

ODP 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.

559.35% 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

ODP 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.
