Intrinsic Value Calculation: BDO, AC, BPI for FY2017

intrinsic value of bdo ac bpi

Hey investizen!

This post will discuss two banks; BDO and BPI, and the conglomerate AC.

BDO (BDO Unibank, Inc.)

intrinsic value of bdo

BDO Monthly Pivot Chart as of May 20, 2018.

I like BDO's statistics because it shows hints of profitability. From 2012 to 2017, it has posted asset returns of above 1%. In 2017, it resulted to a 1.11% return. The average of this on a 10-year basis equates to 1.05% which is still above 1%. The average equity returns from the same period equates to 11.07% which is good. 

I also like its growth for the past 10 years. From 2008 to 2017, earnings per share grew at an annual rate of 12.96%. The bank also maintained a healthy dividend yield.

Just something to take a look at is the dilution of shareholder value year-on-year. From 2.7 billion shares in 2008, BDO currently has 4.3 billion shares outstanding.

BDO is currently priced at ₱132.30 per share and is trading at 1.98x book. This is a little bit expensive in my opinion. I would say that a price anything below 1.85x book is worth considering.

On the technical side of things, the monthly pivot point rests at ₱133.70. Support levels to watch are ₱126.10, ₱120.50 and ₱112.90. Resistance levels to watch are ₱139.30, ₱146.90 and ₱152.50 (see chart).

BPI (Bank Of The Philippine Islands)

intrinsic value of bpi

BPI Monthly Pivot Chart as of May 20, 2018.

BPI's statistics is quite a bit more attractive than BDO. Average asset returns from 2008 to 2017 shows 1.37% while equity returns during the same period shows 14.14%. Earnings per share grew at an annual rate of 9.20% and it also pays dividends regularly with better yield than BDO.

Same with BDO, I don't like the shareholder dilution. But while BDO increased shares at a rate of 4.92% yearly, BPI meanwhile only managed to increase by 1.96%.

BPI is trading at ₱99.50 per share with a P/B valuation of 2.17 which I believe is cheap. A soft target based on a fair value multiple of 2.54x may be considered.

The technicals indicate a monthly pivot point at ₱106.80. Support levels to watch are ₱98.20, ₱91.40 and ₱82.80. Resistance levels to watch are ₱113.60, ₱122.20 and ₱129.00 (see chart).

AC (Ayala Corporation)

intrinsic value of ac

AC Monthly Pivot Chart as of May 20, 2018.

Just like SM, AC is a company you also should own. It's a quantitatively healthy company. Just last year, AC booked ₱260.2 billion of revenues and made ₱30.2 billion in income. From 2008 to 2017, earnings per share grew at an annual rate of 21.06% while book value grew at 9.09%. The company also regularly pays dividends. 

Operating cash flow in 2017 was booked at ₱25.5 billion. Free Cash Flow meanwhile was at negative ₱207 million due to a huge capital spending that summed up at ₱25.7 billion.

The current ratio for FY2017 is good at 1.31 but you should take a deeper look at its D/E ratio of 1.29.

AC currently trades at 2.48x book which is ₱929 per share. It's a bit expensive for now in my opinion. I'm better off to buy it below 2.23x book. 

The pivot levels to watch are as follows; PP ₱947.83, S1 ₱914.17, S2 ₱862.33, S3 ₱828.67, R1 ₱999.67, R2 ₱1,033.33 and R3 ₱1,085.17 (see chart).

Final Thoughts

In these three stocks, we can see that only BPI is trading below intrinsic value. Buying it at ₱99.50 gives you an upside of 17.1%.

As for BDO and AC, waiting may prove to be wiser at this moment.
