Recommendation (Sept 2020)
A good business, but not a great investment at $115 per share.
A price of $115 per share implies that ADI will grow its revenue by 2.2x over the next 10 years, starting 2021. I.e. a CAGR of 5.6%.
If we assume that EPS will grow at 10% CAGR for 10 years and will trade at 22x earnings in 2029, the Projected price that year would grow 1.7x plus $35 worth cumulative dividends.
A purchase today at $115 would result in a return of 7.2% CAGR.
