I review Verizon’s operating segments, look at its key ratios, and derive the intrinsic value using Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) analysis. Since this is a long video, please feel free to use the time stamps in the video if you only wish to watch certain topics.
I review various key ratios such as Revenue, Net Income, Shares outstanding, Dividends, Payout Ratio, Free Cash Flows (FCF), Financial Leverage, Current Ratio, Debt to Equity Ratio, Return on Equity (ROE), Days Sales Outstanding (DSO), Days Inventory, Payable Period, Cash Conversion Cycle, Inventory Turnover, etc.
After taking into account Verizon’s 2020 free cash flow of $21,450 million figure, a 5% growth rate of FCF (growth for the next 10 years), 10% discount rate, 2% long term growth rate (growth from 10 year mark to perpetuity), 4,144 million shares outstanding, and $123,173 million of long term debt, the DCF analysis yields us an intrinsic value of $50.27 per share. When we drop the discount rate to 8.5% (which is 3% higher than Verizon’s WACC), the intrinsic value comes to $70.32 per share.
