GOOGL Value

 Is Alphabet 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 Alphabet to its discounted cash flow analysis.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?

  • The current share price of Alphabet is above its future cash flow value.
Often investors are willing to pay a premium for a company that has a high dividend or the potential for future growth.
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 Alphabet's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.
Price based on past earnings
Are Alphabet's earnings available for a low price, and how does this compare to other companies in the same industry?
  • Alphabet is overvalued based on earnings compared to the US Internet industry average.
  • Alphabet is overvalued based on earnings compared to the US market.
Price based on expected Growth
Does Alphabet's expected growth come at a high price?
  • Alphabet is poor value based on expected growth next year.
Price based on value of assets
What value do investors place on Alphabet's assets?
  • Alphabet is overvalued based on assets compared to the US Internet industry average.

Value checks
We assess Alphabet'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 Internet 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 Internet industry average (and greater than 0)? (1 check)
  5. Alphabet has a total score of 0/6, 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 (86.45%).

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

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Alphabet 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:
$145,824

Terminal Value

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

Terminal Value = $56,321 × (1 + 2.47%) ÷ (11.93% – 2.47%)

Terminal value based on the Perpetuity Method where growth (g) = 2.47%:
$609,807

Present value of terminal value:
$347,041

Equity Value

Equity Value (Total value) = Present value of next 5 years cash flows + terminal value
$492,865 = $145,824 + $347,041

Value = Total value / Shares Outstanding ($492,865 / 695)

Discount to Share Price

Value per share (USD): $709.62

Current discount (share price of $1,075.31): -51.53%



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 = 11.93% = 2.47% + (1.257 * 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 ($751,351,946,222).

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

1.257 = 1.248 (1 + (1- 2.7%) (0.71%))

Levered Beta used in calculation = 1.257



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.

GOOGL Future Performance

 How is Alphabet expected to perform in the next 1 to 3 years based on estimates from 36 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!

Future performance checks
We assess Alphabet's future performance by looking at:
  1. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to beat the low risk savings rate, plus a premium to keep pace with inflation?
  2. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to beat the average growth rate in earnings of the US market? (1 check)

GOOGL Past Performance

  How has Alphabet 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 Alphabet's growth in the last year to its industry (Internet).
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.
  • Alphabet's year on year earnings growth rate has been positive over the past 5 years.
  • Alphabet's 1-year earnings growth is negative, it can't be compared to the 5-year average.
  • Alphabet's 1-year earnings growth is negative, it can't be compared to the US Internet industry average.
Earnings and Revenue History
Alphabet'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.
  • Alphabet has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Alphabet used its assets more efficiently than the US Internet industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Alphabet has improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).
X
Past performance checks
We assess Alphabet's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:
  1. Has earnings increased in past 5 years? (1 check)
  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Internet 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.
Alphabet has a total score of 3/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note: We use GAAP Net Income excluding extraordinary items in all our calculations.

GOOGL Health

 How is Alphabet'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 Alphabet's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Alphabet is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Alphabet's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Alphabet'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 covered by short term assets, assets are 23.3x 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.
  • Alphabet's level of debt (3.3%) compared to net worth is satisfactory (less than 40%).
  • The level of debt compared to net worth has been reduced over the past 5 years (9.8% vs 3.3% today).
  • Debt is well covered by operating cash flow (739.1%, greater than 20% of total debt).
  • Alphabet earns more interest than it pays, coverage of interest payments is not a concern.
X
Financial health checks
We assess Alphabet's financial health by checking for:
  1. Are short term assets greater than short term liabilities? (1 check)
  2. Are short term assets greater than long term liabilities? (1 check)
  3. Has the debt to equity ratio increased in the past 5 years? (1 check)
  4. Is the debt to equity ratio over 40%? (1 check)
  5. Is the debt covered by operating cash flow? (1 check)
  6. Are earnings greater than 5x the interest on debt (if company pays interest at all)? (1 check)
  7. Alphabet has a total score of 6/6, see the detailed checks below.
For companies that are loss making and have been so on average in the past we replace the last 2 checks with:
  1. Does cash and short term investments cover stable operating expenses (recurring G&A and R&D) for more than 3 years? (1 check)
  2. Does cash and short term investments cover growing operating expenses (recurring G&A and R&D) for more than 3 years? (1 check)

  • Unable to evaluate Alphabet's dividend against the low risk savings benchmark as the company has not reported any payouts.
  • Unable to evaluate Alphabet's dividend against the market benchmark as the company has not reported any payouts.
Annualized Historical and Future Dividends
It is important to see if the dividend for a company is stable, and not wildly increasing/decreasing each year. This graph shows you the historical rate to count toward your assessment of the stock.

We also check to see if the dividend has increased in the past 10 years.
  • Unable to perform a dividend volatility check as Alphabet has not reported any payouts.
  • Unable to verify if Alphabet's dividend has been increasing as the company has not reported any payouts.
Current Payout to shareholders

X
Income/ dividend checks
We assess Alphabet's dividend by checking for:
  1. Firstly is the company paying a notable dividend (greater than 0.5%) - if not then the rest of the checks are ignored.
  2. Current dividend yield, is there one at all, is it higher than the low risk savings rate, and is it above the top 25% of dividend payers? (2 checks)
  3. Have they paid a dividend for 10 years, and during this period has the dividend been volatile (drop of more than 25%)? (1 check)
  4. If they have paid a dividend for 10 years has it increased in this time? (1 check)
  5. How sustainable is the dividend, can Alphabet afford to pay it from its earnings today and in 3 years (Payout ratio less than 90%)? (2 checks)
  6. Alphabet has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.
