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

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Deutsche Post 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.
  • Deutsche Post has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%).
  • Deutsche Post used its assets more efficiently than the Europe Logistics industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Deutsche Post's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess Deutsche Post'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 Logistics 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.
Deutsche Post has a total score of 5/6, see the detailed checks below.

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

Health

 How is Deutsche Post'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 Deutsche Post's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Deutsche Post's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Deutsche Post's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Deutsche Post'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 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.
