As part of a new series, each week we typically conduct a DCF on one of the companies in our screens. However, this week we thought we’d take a look at one of the stocks that is not in our screens. The stock is Visa Inc (V).

- Terminal Growth Rate: 2%
- WACC: 6%
Forecasted Free Cash Flows (FCFs)
Terminal Value = FCF * (1 + g) / (r – g) = 637.5 billion
Present Value of Terminal Value
PV of Terminal Value = Terminal Value / (1 + WACC)^5 = 476.38 billion
Present Value of Free Cash Flows
Present Value of FCFs = ∑ (FCF / (1 + r)^n) = 86.64 billion
Enterprise Value = Present Value of FCFs + Present Value of Terminal Value = 563.02 billion
Net Debt = Total Debt – Total Cash = 6.76 billion
Equity Value = Enterprise Value – Net Debt = 556.26 billion
Per-Share DCF Value
Per-Share DCF Value = Enterprise Value / Number of Shares Outstanding = $297.46

It is important to note that this valuation is based on a number of assumptions, and these assumptions could change in the future. This valuation is meant to be a back-of-the-envelope analyse that could be used as a starting point in a much more thorough valuation process. As a result, it is important to do your own research before making any investment decision.
