Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for NasdaqGS:HUBG using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Hub Group is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We try to start with analysts estimates of free cash flow, however if these are not available we use the most recent financial results. In the 1st stage we continue to grow the free cash flow over a 10 year period, with the growth rate trending towards the perpetual growth rate used in the 2nd stage. The 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

Current Discount Checks
For Hub Group to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Hub Group's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Hub Group'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 Avocados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

HUBG Health

 How is Hub Group'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 Hub Group's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Hub Group is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Hub Group's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Hub Group'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 1.8x 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.

What Does Hub Group, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:HUBG) 9.6% ROCE Say About The Business?

Specifically, we're going to calculate its Return On Capital Employed (ROCE), in the hopes of getting some insight into the business. … The formula for calculating the return on capital employed is: Return on Capital Employed = Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) ÷ (Total Assets - Current Liabilities) Or for Hub Group: 0.096 = US$139m ÷ (US$1.9b - US$487m) (Based on the trailing twelve months to March 2019.) Therefore, Hub Group has an ROCE of 9.6%. … The ROCE equation subtracts current liabilities from capital employed, so a company with a lot of current liabilities appears to have less capital employed, and a higher ROCE than otherwise.
