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 27.1%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 8.7%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 27.1%, 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)
2023 3.26 3.0
2024 4.15 3.51
2025 5.27 4.1
2026 6.7 4.8
2027 8.52 5.61
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 129 billion. This corresponds to a present value of 78.3 billion.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 21.0 billion. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 99.3 billion.

There are presently 128.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 777.5.
