I'm assuming the last several columns are using a DCF to back into implied growth assumptions that match the current price, correct?

Hi Russ,

Thanks for joining the discussion. I'll take a closer look at MKS Instruments and thanks for the idea.

Ford's in the MUE port and I'm thinking of adding my last position in it. With strong debt paydown this year, institutional investors will begin to buy more of it and that should help a lot.

I've been going back and forth in my mind about GE. Such a huge conglomerate that I've always found difficult to get a handle on but then the price has been beaten down so much.

Answering your question, yes. Those are the annual growth rates of TTM FCF for the years shown using a 15% discount rate to get a DCF model to produce a share price equal to the then-current share price.

Cheers,
Jim
