Hi everyone,

So over the weekend, I got TTM FCF, share count, and recent price data for the over 2800 companies in the Russell 3000 index. I then (automatically!!) generated a predicted price assuming a 5.0 / 2.5 / 0 growth pattern. (Remember, that's shorthand for % CAGR for first five years / % CAGR second five years / Terminal growth rate.)

Then I scanned through the list to see what companies had prices higher than the latest. There were a lot of financial firms -- banks and insurance companies primarily -- on the list, but also a bunch that were in other industries. (I ignored those financial firms.) Microsoft wasn't on the resulting list because the latest numbers are 6.1 / 3.1 / 2.5. But, Oshkosh and Power-One were on the list. (Transocean wasn't though, because it's not a member of the index.)

Here's what came through, and what MUE growth rates are expected at last night's close, at a 15% discount rate.

Boise BZ -18.9 / -9.5 / 0
Cabela's CAB 2.4 / 1.4 / 0
