Analysis Details
Growth Rate Projection

An exponential growth model was fit to the past cash flow data, giving more weight to more recent years. This model determined a growth rate estimate of 18.3%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 3.3%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 18.3%, the cash flows for the next 5 years are projected.

The present value of each year's flow is adjusted to present value using the discount rate.

Year Future flow (billion) Present value (billion)
2023 1.95 1.88
2024 2.3 2.16
2025 2.72 2.47
2026 3.22 2.82
2027 3.81 3.23
Terminal Value

Assuming the company was sold after the projection period at an exit multiple of 30, the terminal value of the company would be 114 billion. This corresponds to a present value of 93.9 billion.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 12.6 billion. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 106 billion.

There are presently 102.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 1047.25.
