Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for NYSE:LTC using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity using Adjusted Funds From Operations Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for LTC Properties is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We use analyst's estimates of cash flows going forward 5 years for the 1st stage, the 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

LTC Properties is a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), we use funds from operations (FFO) or adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) instead of levered free cash flow for REITs. This excludes depreciation and borrowing. Ideally analysts estimates of AFFO are used, where these aren't available we use FFO.

LTC Health

 How is LTC Properties'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 LTC Properties's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • LTC Properties's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • LTC Properties's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of LTC Properties'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.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.2x 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.
