We started the process of determining a valid price forecast for Clorox Co with a discounted cash flow analysis -- the results of which can be found in the table below. To summarize, we found that Clorox Co ranked in the 43th 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. In terms of the factors that were most noteworthy in this DCF analysis for CLX, they are:

  • Interest coverage, a measure of earnings relative to interest payments, is 13 -- which is good for besting 75.83% of its peer stocks (US stocks in the Consumer Defensive sector with positive cash flow).
  • CLX'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 28.31% of tickers in our DCF set.
