Value

 Is Lowe's Companies 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.

Discounted cash flow (2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity)

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Lowe's Companies 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:
$22,800

Terminal Value

Terminal Value = FCF2022 × (1 + g) ÷ (Discount Rate – g)

Terminal Value = $7,732 × (1 + 2.47%) ÷ (8.9% – 2.47%)

Terminal value based on the Perpetuity Method where growth (g) = 2.47%:
$123,170

Present value of terminal value:
$80,412

Equity Value

Equity Value (Total value) = Present value of next 5 years cash flows + terminal value
$103,213 = $22,800 + $80,412

Value = Total value / Shares Outstanding ($103,213 / 830)

Discount to Share Price

Value per share:
$124.39

Current discount (share price of $97.49): 21.63%



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 = 8.9% = 2.47% + (0.854 * 7.53%)



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). Note the market value of equity is used not the book value ($80,395,504,243).

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

0.854 = 0.763 (1 + (1- 40%) (19.95%))

Levered Beta used in calculation = 0.854



Assumptions
  1. The risk free rate of 2.47% is from the 10 year government bond rate in USD.
  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 (7.53%) (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.
