Value

 Is Thomson Reuters 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 Thomson Reuters 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.

Below are the data sources, inputs and calculation used to determine the intrinsic value for Thomson Reuters.

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for BST:TOCB using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Thomson Reuters 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.

Note: Free cash flow to equity valuations ignore the company's cash or debt.

  • The current share price of Thomson Reuters 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 Thomson Reuters's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Past Performance

  How has Thomson Reuters 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 Thomson Reuters's growth in the last year to its industry (Professional Services).
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.
  • Thomson Reuters's year on year earnings growth rate was negative over the past 5 years, however the most recent earnings are above average.
  • Thomson Reuters's 1-year earnings growth exceeds its 5-year average (2107% vs -33.1%)
  • Thomson Reuters's earnings growth has exceeded the Europe Professional Services industry average in the past year (2107% vs 5.4%).

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.
  • Thomson Reuters has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Thomson Reuters used its assets more efficiently than the Europe Professional Services industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Thomson Reuters's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess Thomson Reuters'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 Professional Services 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.
Thomson Reuters 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.

Health

 How is Thomson Reuters'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 Thomson Reuters's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Thomson Reuters's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Thomson Reuters's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Thomson Reuters'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.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.9x 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.
