Value

 Is Skyworks Solutions undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale at half price, they could be considered undervalued.
INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
Here we compare the current share price of Skyworks Solutions to its discounted cash flow value.

The discounted cash flow value is simply looking at what the company is worth today, based on estimates of how much money it is expected to make in the future.

How is this discounted cash flow calculated?

Current Discount
Amount off the current price Skyworks Solutions is available for.
Intrinsic value
27%
Share price is $105.89 vs Future cash flow value of $144.11
Current Discount Checks
For Skyworks Solutions to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Skyworks Solutions's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a significant discount (> 20%).
  • Skyworks Solutions's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a substantial discount (< 40%).
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avacados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

The amount the stock market is willing to pay for Skyworks Solutions's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.
Price based on past earnings
Are Skyworks Solutions's earnings available for a low price, and how does this compare to other companies in the same industry?
  • Good value based on earnings compared to the Semiconductors industry average.
  • Good value based on earnings compared to the overall market.
Price based on expected Growth
Does Skyworks Solutions's expected growth come at a high price?
  • Poor value based on expected growth next year.
Price based on value of assets
What value do investors place on Skyworks Solutions's assets?
  • Overvalued based on assets compared to the Semiconductors industry average.

Value checks
We assess Skyworks Solutions's value by looking at:
  1. Is the discounted cash flow value less than 20%, or 40% of the share price? (2 checks) (Click here or on bar chart for details of DCF calculation.)
  2. Is the PE ratio less than the market average, and/ or less than the Semiconductors industry average (and greater than 0)? (2 checks)
  3. Is the PEG ratio within a reasonable range (0 to 1)? (1 check)
  4. Is the PB ratio less than the Semiconductors industry average (and greater than 0)? (1 check)
  5. Skyworks Solutions has a total score of 3/6, see the detailed checks below.

    Note: We use GAAP Earnings per Share in all our calculations including PE and PEG Ratio.
    Note 2: PEG ratio is based on analysts EPS growth expectations in 1 year (18.93%).

Discounted cash flow (Free cash flow to Equity)

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Skyworks Solutions is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value. We use analyst's estimates of cash flows going forward 5 years.

See our documentation to learn about this calculation.

5 year cash flow forecast

Present value of next 5 years cash flows:
$5,733

Terminal Value

Terminal Value = FCF2021 × (1 + g) ÷ (Discount Rate – g)

Terminal Value = $1,974 × (1 + 2.3%) ÷ (8.71% – 2.3%)

Terminal value based on the Perpetuity Method where growth (g) = 2.3%:
$31,667

Present value of terminal value:
$20,859

Equity Value

Equity Value (Total value) = Present value of next 5 years cash flows + terminal value

Value = Total value / Shares Outstanding ($26,592 / 185)

Value per share:
$144.11

Current discount (share price of $105.89): 27%



Estimate of Discount Rate

The discount rate, or required rate of return, is estimated by calculating the Cost of Equity.

Discount rate = Cost of Equity = Risk Free Rate + (Levered Beta * Equity Risk Premium)

Discount rate = 8.71% = 2.33% + (0.832 * 7.67%)



Estimate of Bottom Up Beta

The Levered Beta is the Unlevered Beta adjusted for financial leverage. It is limited to 0.8 to 2.0 (practical range for a stable firm).

Levered Beta = Unlevered beta (1 + (1- tax rate) (Debt/Equity))

0.832 = 0.832 (1 + (1- 30%) (0%))

Levered Beta used in calculation = 0.832



Assumptions
  1. The risk free rate of 2.33% is from the 10 year government bond rate in US.
  2. The bottom-up beta is estimated by analysing other companies in the same industry.
  3. The Equity Risk Premium is calculated by subtracting the risk free rate from the market return premium (10%) (source: Buffet).
  4. The dividend discount model is automatically used for companies in the following industries: Banks, Insurance, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), Diversified Financial Services and Capital Markets.

Future Performance

 How is Skyworks Solutions expected to perform in the next 1 to 3 years based on estimates from 22 analysts?

    The future performance of a company is measured in the same way as past performance, by looking at estimated growth and how much profit it is expected to make.

    Future estimates come from professional analysts. Just like forecasting the weather, they don’t always get it right!
    3 year growth
    19%
    Expected earnings growth over 1 year.
    Future Earnings growth analysis
    Is Skyworks Solutions expected to grow at an attractive rate? We look at the 1 year and 3 year growth below.

    • Profit
    Performance in 3 years
    In the same way as past performance we look at the future estimated return (profit) compared to the available funds. We do this looking forward 3 years.
    • Skyworks Solutions is expected to perform strongly, Return on Equity (ROE) in 3 years is estimated to be above 20%.

    Improvement & Relative to industry
    • Expected to be above the Semiconductors industry average.
    • A decline in Skyworks Solutions's performance (ROE) is expected over the next 3 years.
    X
    Future performance checks
    We assess Skyworks Solutions's future performance by looking at:
    1. Is the growth in earnings expected to beat the low risk savings rate, plus a premium to keep pace with inflation, in 1 year and 3 years? (2 checks)
    2. Does the average analyst expect Revenue to increase by 50% or more in 2 years? (1 check)
    3. Does the average analyst expect Operating Cash Flow to increase by 50% or more in 2 years? (1 check)
    4. Does the average analyst expect Net Income (Profit) to increase by 50% or more in 2 years? (1 check)
    5. Is the Return on Equity in 3 years expected to be over 20%? (1 check)
    Some of the above checks will fail if the company is expected to be loss making in the relevant year.
    Skyworks Solutions has a total score of 3/6, see the detailed checks below.

    Note: If no +3 year data is available, +2.5 year data may be used.

    Note 2: We use GAAP per Share in all our calculations.

    Past Performance

     How has Skyworks Solutions performed over the past 5 years?

    The past performance of a company can be measured by how much growth it has experienced and how much profit it makes relative to the funds and assets it has available.
    Past earnings growth
    Below we compare Skyworks Solutions's growth in the last year to its industry (Semiconductors).
    Past Earnings growth analysis
    We also check if the company has grown in the past 5 years, and whether it has maintained that growth in the year.
    • Skyworks Solutions's earnings growth has not matched the industry average in the past year.
    • Skyworks Solutions's 1 year earnings growth is negative.
    • Skyworks Solutions has delivered strong earnings growth in the past 5 years.
    Profit History
    Skyworks Solutions's revenue and profit over the past 5 years is shown below, any years where they have experienced a loss will show up in red.
    Performance last year
    We want to ensure a company is making the most of what it has available. This is done by comparing the return (profit) to a company's available funds, assets and capital.
    • Strong return on shareholders funds (ROE) last year.
    • Skyworks Solutions performed above the Semiconductors industry average based on return on assets (ROA) last year.
    • Performance based on revenue producing assets (ROCE) has been diminishing over 3 years.
    X
