Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

OXY 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.

OXY has only created $1.77 of cash for every $100 invested.

Very Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

OXY has generated a $1.57 loss for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Excellent Business Performance over the past 10 years

OXY has been able to maintain profitability in good times and bad. This could mean OXY has an extremely strong business or has the ability to scale down costs when needed. This should be a fairly resilient business, but double check for future sustainability by looking at its Risk Factors in the Annual Report.

OXY has created positive free cash flow for 9 or more of the past 10 years.

Weak Balance Sheet

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

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

Inconsistent Net Profit Margins over the past 10 years

OXY potentially has a competitive advantage, however inconsistent profit margins are a cause for concern. Look at reasons for this inconsistency to determine the likelihood of future sustainability.

$10.38 of every $100 of Revenue have been pure profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Strong Pricing Power over the past 10 years

OXY 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.

$67.97 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

OXY 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.

272.83% 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

OXY has consistently distributed a dividend for at least the past 10 years. Such a long dividend history suggests OXY is very established in its market and that its dividend distribution is likely to continue for a significant period of time.

Strong History of Stock Buybacks over the past 10 years

OXY has a strong 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.

Morningstar rates the stock a buy. Of course, you might want to wait for a better entry point if you don't like the price now, but it's reasonably priced, compared to the industry average and the S&P500 as a whole.
