Texas Roadhouse

  1. Company Overview- Source

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, operating 563 locations in 49 U.S states, and Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, the Philippines, Mexico, and Taiwan, Texas Roadhouse (TXRH) is an American chain restaurant that specializes in steaks. It was founded in 1993 by W. Kent Taylo. American cuisine, including steak, ribs, chicken, and seafood is served by waiters, waitresses and hosts perform these dances throughout the night.

Having a net profit of $158.22 Million and market capitalisation of $ 4.29 b, the company is growing its revenue at an average rate of 11% which is reported to be $ 2.46 Billion.

  1. DCF Valuation

Using one stage stable growth model using the growth rate of the company which is nearly equating with the growth of restaurant companies.

The factual of the DCF valuation are as under:

(Some insight on DCF, CAPM and WACC- Before you start first of all lets have some understanding of DCF- Discounted cash flow gives you the present value of future cash flows, say if you are going to earn $ 55000 per annum for whole of your life and the interest rates in US are say, 3% you worth on this day is $55000/.03= $1.8333 Million, look you are already a millionaire.

Similarly company’s EBIT are its earning and interest rate is nothing but opportunity cost of funds which is cost of capital.

Cost of Capital is weighted average cost of factors of capital.

Cost of debt is % age of interest paid on debt

Cost of equity is expected return by shareholders.

Cost of equity is found by Capital asset pricing model.

Which is based on the concept that how much extra return an investor wants if he is taking the risk, Beta.

So simply with 0 risk investor can get treasury rate returns which is risk free rate and with risk as 1 i.e. market risk investor can get some return over risk free return that is market premium which is Market risk – risk free premium. This Market risk premium multiplied by beta gives you that extra return which investor wants after taking risk. Hence CAPM= Rf +Market risk Premium X Beta.

That’s all.)

(Amount in Million)

Growth rate-


Debt ratio-




Risk Free rate-


Risk premium- (2018- considered)


Cost of debt- ($1.577 M/$ 52.269M)-(interest/debt)-


Tax Rate-


Return on capital-


Reinvestment Rate- Ratio)- Payout Ratio, taken as 40% -Average.

Reinvestment rate is the percentage of profit not distributed and invested back in the company.


Cost of Equity- Derived From CAPM model

(Rf+ Risk PremiumX Beta)


Cost Of Capital

WACC= Weight of Debt x Cost of Debt + Weight of Equity x Cost of Equity

Weight of Debt = Debt Ratio/1+ Debt ratio

Weight of Equity= 1- Weight of debt


EBIT ($ Million)

$ 290.78 M

EQUITY VALUE- EBIT/cost of capital – Debt

$ 3741.306 M

FIRM VALUE= Equity Value+Debt

$ 3807.656 M

SHARE Outstanding


Share Value- Equity Value/ Share outstanding

$ 53.11

Current Price-google

$ 63.08

The company is trading high than its value due to its high revenue growth, hence it is advisable to sell the shares.

Sensitivity Analysis

The Key driver of TXRH is its increasing growth rate.

(Growth rate falls down, the cost of equity will change, which plays a major part in cost of capital as weight of equity is way more higher than weight of debt)

  1. Relative Valuation

(Model used is PE- PE is price to earning factor= Price of share / Earning per share(EPS). EPS= EBIT/ Number of shares outstanding)

As TXRH is having maximum of its branches in America, the restaurant chains of America are selected for the relative valuation. Selected companies included Darden Restaurant, Cracker Barrel Old Ctry store, Ruth Hospitality, Wendy’s co and Bloomin’ Brands Inc. etc. (Data From-

Company Name

PE Ratio

Darden Restr.


Cracker Barrel.


Ruth Hospitality


Wendy’s Co


Bloomin’ Brands Inc.



Whereas TXRH’s PE ratio is 28.78.

After analysis, PE ratio of 15 chain restaurant stocks comparable, the PE ratio for restaurant industry is found to be 21.7. (Intercept Value from Regression analysis was taken as PE) (I have used capital and PE ratios of few companies and ran a regression model, results are on excel sheet)

Earning per share of TXRH is $2.207 ($158.227/71.69) /(Earnings / Number of shares Outstanding)

Using PE ratio as a factor the Value of stock shall stand at $2.207 X 21.7 = $47.89.

The result is consistent with the DCF analysis, and shows that the stock is overpriced.

  1. Market Valuation

Restaurant Brands (QSR) as on 1st March 2019 is having a PE ratio of 24.13, using a regression model.

Using the PE ratio to the earnings of TXRH, we have value of stock as $ 2.207 X 24.13 = $ 53.257. (PE ratio Available)

  1. Final Analysis

Current Price

$ 63.08

DCF Value

$ 53.11

PE Ratio of TXRH


PE Ratio of Comparable


PE Ratio of Market


Average Value of share

$ 51.42


Using equal weights for the value derived from all the three models, the valuation of share of TXRH comes out to be $ 32.34.

Current share price is way much higher than the derived valuation as PE ratio is also suggesting the same.

Lastly, opining from the analysis it is recommended to sell the stock.

(If value of stock is lower than the current market price it is expected to come down, so if you are holding the shares you should sell it in such circumstances or else you can short sell them on current date and buy at the later period when prices falls which will allow you to make profits- that’s trading on downfall)
