Below please find a table outlining a discounted cash flow forecast for AOS, in which we model out valuation assuming a variety of terminal growth rates. To summarize, we found that Smith A O Corp ranked in the 50th percentile in terms of potential gain offered. We should note, though, that the most conservative analysis suggests this stock will yield negative results -- and thus may be a potential short opportunity. As for the metrics that stood out in our discounted cash flow analysis of Smith A O Corp, consider:

  • Interest coverage, a measure of earnings relative to interest payments, is 61.81 -- which is good for besting 94.78% of its peer stocks (US stocks in the Industrials sector with positive cash flow).
  • The business' balance sheet reveals debt to be 1% of the company's capital (with equity being the remaining amount). Approximately just 9.07% of US stocks with free cash flow have a lower reliance on debt in their capital structure.
  • AOS's estimated cost of debt, based largely on its market capitalization and its interest coverage ratio, is 3%; for context, that number is higher than 52.9% of tickers in our DCF set.
