Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

WWW 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.

WWW has only created $9.77 of cash for every $100 invested.

Satisfactory Return on Equity over the past 5 years

WWW has generated adequate returns with capital that shareholders have invested. This is sufficient and implies that management performance has been good.

WWW has generated $12.16 of Earnings for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Excellent Business Performance over the past 10 years

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

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

Weak Balance Sheet

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

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

Competitive Industry over the past 10 years

WWW is likely operating in an industry with medium to low barriers to entry. This may mean that WWW doesn't have a characteristic that's hard to replicate, such as exclusive distribution, branding or the ability to keep costs low. If Gross Margins are at least satisfactory, it's likely that WWW invests heavily in R&D and Sales, General & Administrative expenses.

Only $5.99 of every $100 of Revenue have been profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Varying Pricing Power over the past 10 years

WWW has maintained substantial gross margins, suggesting that they have been able to set prices without consideration of the cost of goods sold. However, there is a substantial variation in their Gross Profit Margins from year-to-year, which indicates inconsistent performance. Look at reasons for this inconsistency to determine the likelihood of future sustainability.

$45.29 of every $100 worth of sales have been Gross Profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Medium Capital Intensity over the past 10 years

WWW has used a reasonable amount of their financial resources to invest in facilities and equipment required to produce its goods and services. This isn't perfect, but it shouldn't be an area of concern unless this number is strongly trending upwards.

27.77% 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

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

WWW 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.
