NOC Revenue

For a long time, value investors have used the current share price relative to sales per share levels as an important valuation tool. We utilize a historical weighted average methodology that treats recent years more importantly in the calculation. When looking at NOC through this framework, we can see that our weighted average historical high and low Price to Sales per share ratios over the last 10 years are 0.94x and 0.65x respectively.

Utilizing this range we can see that NOC’s current Price to Sales per share ratio of 0.47x is significantly below its average levels historically. In fact, with a current price of $52.37, NOC is a full 42% below its average Price to Sales ratio at comparable sales levels. This is a rare occurrence and, when taken in context of the other areas of our analysis, can be a strong positive for our outlook for NOC.

NOC Cash Earnings

When reviewing a company and their prospects for success, it is necessary to analyze their ability to generate positive Cash Earnings. This is a vital component to our analysis, because as a long term investment research firm, there are few factors more closely tied to the valuation of a company as Cash Earnings. In the case of NOC, it appears that either the current estimate for Cash Earnings is negative or NOC is not likely to generate positive Cash Earnings based upon their prior performance in the last several quarters. Remember that Cash Earnings is not the only way to value a company’s potential, but in our analysis it is the most important. Thus, for our analysis NOC receives a negative score from a Cash perspective. At Ockham, we are fond of saying "Cash is King," and in this case the company is not generating any. If a company is not able to generate a profit then there is no reason to invest in them. Unless of course you believe in the story, and hope it will eventually lead to a profitable enterprise.

NOC Dividends

A positive Ockham rating does not require a company to pay out an inviting dividend or a dividend at all. However, we believe dividends provide a useful measure of a company’s inherent expectations.

Comparable to our analysis of Sales and Cash Earnings per share, we examine dividend yields from NOC against the historic high and low levels over an available data range. Because NOC has an established history of paying a dividend to shareholders, there is value in comparing recent dividends to historical dividends. In NOC’s case, the estimated annual dividend is $1.72 producing a current dividend yield of 3.28%. The highest dividend yield from NOC in recent history was 5.09% while the lowest dividend yield was 1.18%. A current dividend yield of 4.63% above the historical median is favorable in our analysis of NOC.
