How to Value a Stock

As a value investor, you want to buy stock in great companies for great prices. This means comparing what a stock is really worth to its current price, so you know if it is cheap, expensive, or fairly priced. But how do you know what a stock is really worth?

In this book, you will learn about various metrics and methods used to value a stock. There is no single method that is the best to use. Instead, there are several methods that you can add to your valuation toolbox. Then, you can choose which one is the best fit for a company’s particular situation. When a business is losing money or closing its doors, a liquidation value might be the most appropriate. When a company’s cash flow is predictable, the discounted cash flow analysis method may be best.

Concepts covered in this book include:

-earnings multiples
-P/E ratios
-EBITDA multiples
-enterprise value
-free cash flow
-owner’s earnings (Warren Buffett’s invention)
-discounted cash flow analysis, and
-dividend discount model

With these methods, you will be able to value many different kinds of companies so you can decide whether a particular stock is a good buy. You will also better understand the reasoning behind an analyst’s opinion of value when reading investment reports. Knowing how to accurately value a stock will help you make better investment decisions and take advantage of opportunities in the stock market.
