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 16.5%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 8.3%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 16.5%, 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 9.81 9.05
2024 11.4 9.73
2025 13.3 10.5
2026 15.5 11.3
2027 18.0 12.1
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 291 billion. This corresponds to a present value of 180 billion.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 52.6 billion. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 233 billion.

There are presently 865.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 269.4.
