PAYX Price Forecast Based on DCF Valuation

Current PriceDCF Fair Value Target:Forecasted Gain:

We started the process of determining a valid price forecast for Paychex Inc with a discounted cash flow analysis -- the results of which can be found in the table below. To summarize, we found that Paychex Inc ranked in the 29th 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. The most interesting components of our discounted cash flow analysis for Paychex Inc ended up being:

  • The stock's equity weight, or the proportion of capital from equity relative to debt, is 96. Notably, its equity weight is greater than 92.82% of US equities in the Industrials sector yielding a positive free cash flow.
  • The business' balance sheet reveals debt to be 4% of the company's capital (with equity being the remaining amount). Approximately only 10.62% of US stocks with free cash flow have a lower reliance on debt in their capital structure.
  • Paychex Inc's interest coverage rate -- a measure of gross earnings relative to interest payments -- comes in at -363. This coverage rate is greater than that of merely 0.61% of stocks we're observing for the purpose of forecasting via discounted cash flows.
