Welcome back to my weekly stock analysis. Disclaimer: I am not invested in this one.
Parker-Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH)
Sector: Full Time Employees (Industry)
Parker Hannifin is an American motion and control technologies company. The company is one of the largest regarding motion controls including climate control, electromechanical, filtration, hydraulics, and more. For more information, I direct you here. PH is among the Fortune 500 and the S&P 500. The most recent news was the acquisition of Clarcor in 2016 and a 2013 manufacturing defect on Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning 2.
Strengths: - good dividend growth rate - Nice PE ratio (compared to the market) - Low payout ratio - Nice revenue growth
Risks: - 5 years dividend growth - Low yield - Low ROA - High debt to ebitda
PH: Numbers from Seeking Alpha as of Jan 31, 2022
Numbers from Macro Trends as of Jan 31, 2022
|Current Annual Payout/Share||$4.12|
|5 Yr Div Growth Rate||9.52%|
|3 Yr Div Growth Rate||10.53%|
|1 Yr Div Growth Rate||8.52%|
|Years Of Growth||6|
|Current Payout Ratio||23.59%|
|Free Cash Flow / Share||4.7859|
|Debt / Equity Ratio||0.736|
|Debt / EBITDA||2.001|
These numbers leave stories to unpack. PH chose to keep the dividend at $0.63 in 2015. Otherwise, the dividend history looks pretty good to me. They have at the very least paid a dividend since 1989. The largest drop in dividends that I can see is by a penny or two. PH also has plenty of room to grow with that 23.6% payout ratio. There may be bits to be desired regarding debt ratios but 2.001 is workable.
I will now use the 3 year dividend growth rate to project further.
For another way, let's use historical payout ratio to project out.
|EPS Quarterly estimate 2021||4.26|
|EPS Quarterly estimate 2022||3.93|
The first piece to study would be the dividend stand in 2015. This is plausibly explained by the Clarcor acquisition, so I am willing to excuse this. The company did not drop the dividend, not even for covid, so I am willing to overlook this.
Next, the Lockheed Martin defect. This is a huge issue. The only upside I see is that Thomas Williams took over the CEO role in 2015. Outside of a revenue dip through 2016, so far, Mr. Williams seems to be steering better, so to speak.
Despite all these upsides, I believe that there are better deals in the market right now. PH might be worth looking deeper into, but does not hook me in.
Weekly price estimate for a future date, via consulting the crystal ball: Predicted price for PH for Jun 20, 2022: $345.92. There is no factual basis that I will give.
