Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

TRW 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.

TRW has only created $8.74 of cash for every $100 invested.

Excellent Return on Equity over the past 5 years

Over the past 5 years, TRW 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.

TRW has generated $28.32 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Excellent Business Performance over the past 10 years

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

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

Weak Balance Sheet

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

Consistent Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

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

Highly Competitive Industry over the past 10 years

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

Only $2.58 of every $100 of Revenue have been profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Weak Pricing Power over the past 10 years

TRW is likely in a highly competitive industry, due to low barriers to entry. It's because of this, that TRW 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 $18.87 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

TRW 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.

211.98% 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

TRW 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.
