HRL Price Forecast Based on DCF Valuation
DCF Fair Value Target:
Below please find a table outlining a discounted cash flow forecast for HRL, in which we model out valuation assuming a variety of terminal growth rates. To summarize, we found that Hormel Foods Corp ranked in the 25th 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 Hormel Foods Corp, consider:
Interest coverage, a measure of earnings relative to interest payments, is 73.96 -- which is good for besting 94.15% of its peer stocks (US stocks in the Consumer Defensive sector with positive cash flow).
The business' balance sheet suggests that 5% of the company's capital is sourced from debt; this is greater than just 14.45% of the free cash flow producing stocks we're observing.
HRL's estimated cost of debt, based largely on its market capitalization and its interest coverage ratio, is 2%; for context, that number is higher than 44.41% of tickers in our DCF set.
