Value

 Is Trinity Industries 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
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Trinity Industries. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is $20.93.
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 Avocados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

The amount the stock market is willing to pay for Trinity Industries's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

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.
  • Trinity Industries has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Trinity Industries used its assets less efficiently than the US Machinery industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Trinity Industries's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Machinery industry? (1 check)
  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)
  4. Is the Return on Equity (ROE) higher than 20%? (1 check)
  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (1 check)
  6. Has the Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) increased from 3 years ago? (1 check)
The above checks will fail if the company has reported a loss in the most recent earnings report. Some checks require at least 3 or 5 years worth of data.

Health

 How is Trinity Industries's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Trinity Industries's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Trinity Industries is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Trinity Industries's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Trinity Industries's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.3x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
