Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for DB:PBE using Dividend Discount Model Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Peabody Energy is arrived at by discounting future dividends to their present value. This approach is used for finance firms where free cash flow is difficult to estimate (e.g. Banks/ Insurance firms).

If the firm does not pay the majority of its earnings out as a dividend this method will often arrive at a value significantly lower than the share price.

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.
  • It is difficult to establish if Peabody Energy has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Peabody Energy has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the Europe Oil and Gas industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.

PBE Health

 How is Peabody Energy'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 Peabody Energy's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Peabody Energy is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Peabody Energy's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Peabody Energy'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 1.2x 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.
