Growth Rate Assumed by Market

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

Very Poor Cash Return on Invested Capital over the past 5 years

XPO has failed to generate positive returns on 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.

XPO has lost $8.71 of cash for every $100 invested.

Very Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

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

Mediocre Business Performance over the past 10 years

XPO isn't a strong business and might be consistently attempting to fuel growth with debt or has trouble staying profitable. The lack of predictability in free cash flow should be concerning for the reliability of future earnings.

XPO has been unable to consistently create value for shareholders.

Weak Balance Sheet

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

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

XPO 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.

$0.66 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

XPO 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.

$25.20 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

XPO 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.

125.97% 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

XPO 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.
