$92.17$54.71 -44%

We started the process of determining a valid price forecast for Dolby Laboratories Inc with a discounted cash flow analysis -- the results of which can be found in the table below. To summarize, we found that Dolby Laboratories Inc ranked in the 41th 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 Dolby Laboratories Inc, consider:

  • The business' balance sheet reveals debt to be 1% of the company's capital (with equity being the remaining amount). Approximately just 6.43% of US stocks with free cash flow have a lower reliance on debt in their capital structure.
  • DLB'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 53.75% of tickers in our DCF set.
  • As a business, Dolby Laboratories Inc experienced a tax rate of about 4% over the past twelve months; relative to its sector (Consumer Cyclical), this tax rate is higher than only 21.29% of stocks generating free cash flow.
