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 8.1%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 5.6%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 8.1%, 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)
2024 0.988 0.936
2025 1.07 0.959
2026 1.16 0.981
2027 1.25 1.0
2028 1.35 1.03
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 38.4 billion. This corresponds to a present value of 27.7 billion.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 4.91 billion. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 32.6 billion.

There are presently 252.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 129.51.
