We started the process of determining a valid price forecast for Progress Software Corp with a discounted cash flow analysis -- the results of which can be found in the table below. To summarize, we found that Progress Software Corp ranked in the 45th 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 Progress Software Corp ended up being:

  • The compound growth rate in the free cash flow of Progress Software Corp over the past 5.75 years is 0.05%; that's better than only 22.68% of cash flow producing equities in the Technology sector, where it is classified.
  • Progress Software Corp's weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is 9%; for context, that number is higher than merely 19.29% of tickers in our DCF set.
