Financial Newsweek - 8 hours ago
Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE:THO) boasts a Price to Book ratio of 3.494104. This ratio is calculated by dividing the current share price by the book value per share.
Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

Excellent Return on Equity over the past 5 years

Over the past 5 years, THO has generated strong profits with money shareholders have invested. This is considered one of the best indicators of quality management. Beware of extremely high Return on Equity (> 50%) as this is often unsustainable.

THO has generated $17.72 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Excellent Business Performance over the past 10 years

THO has been able to maintain profitability in good times and bad. This could mean THO 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.

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

Good Balance Sheet

THO'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

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

Highly Competitive Industry over the past 10 years

It's likely that THO is in an industry with low barriers to entry, spurring high competition. If Gross Margins are at least satisfactory, it's likely THO invests heavily in R&D and Sales, General & Administrative expenses.

Only $4.23 of every $100 of Revenue have been profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Weak Pricing Power over the past 10 years

THO is likely in a highly competitive industry, due to low barriers to entry. It's because of this, that THO has been unable to raise prices and increase their profitability. This puts them in a poor position if inflation becomes an issue, as they would struggle to pass higher costs onto consumers.

Only $12.83 of every $100 worth of sales have been Gross Profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Low Capital Intensity over the past 10 years

THO has consistently used a small portion of their Net Income buying new equipment or investing in new facilities. This indicates that THO may require minimal investment to stay competitive. This leaves them with extra money to spend on growing their business and potentially buying back stock.

18.42% 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

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

THO 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.
