SPGI Price Forecast Based on DCF Valuation
DCF Fair Value Target:
We started the process of determining a valid price forecast for S&P Global Inc with a discounted cash flow analysis -- the results of which can be found in the table below. To summarize, we found that S&P Global Inc 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. As for the metrics that stood out in our discounted cash flow analysis of S&P Global Inc, consider:
The stock's equity weight, or the proportion of capital from equity relative to debt, is 95. Notably, its equity weight is greater than 91.24% of US equities in the Financial Services sector yielding a positive free cash flow.
The business' balance sheet reveals debt to be 5% of the company's capital (with equity being the remaining amount). Approximately just 15.46% of US stocks with free cash flow have a lower reliance on debt in their capital structure.
SPGI'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 43.3% of tickers in our DCF set.
