Equity Valuation Equity securities Basic Facts  – Stocks are equity securities  ­ certificates of ownership in a corporation  ­ Households hold the largest share of equity securities, more than 36% of  corporate equity  ­ Pension funds are largest institutional investors in equities (21%), followed by mutual funds (20%), and foreign investors (10%) Common Stock and Preferred Stock  ­  Represent ownership interest in a corporation  ­ Are the two most frequently used types of equity securities.  ­ Dividend payments do not affect a firm’s taxes and are not “guaranteed”  but are “promised” to preferred stockholders.  ­ Have limited liability so claims made against the corporation cannot  include a stockholder’s personal assets.  ­ Are generally viewed as perpetuities because they do not have maturity  dates. Common stock  – Is the basic ownership claim in a corporation –  Has the right to vote on matters such as electing a board of directors,  setting a capital budget, and proposed mergers or acquisitions  – Has the right to a firm’s residual assets after creditors, preferred  stockholders, and others with higher priority claims have been satisfied Warren Buffet Intrinsic value (or fundamental value) is an all important concept that offers the  only logical approach to evaluating the relative attractiveness of investments and  businesses. Intrinsic value can be defined simply: It is the discounted value of the cash that can be taken out of a business during its remaining life.” Valuation Based on Comparable Firms  Estimate Stock price based on the price of comparable firms  – Match on characteristics including industry, cost structure, capital  structure, growth potential, life­cycle and presence or absence of  strategic/growth options. –  – But no two investments are identical ­ you must assess the extent to  which the differences across assets are likely to have a material effect on  the valuation multiples and adjust. Where does growth come from? Growth comes from earning a high return on reinvested earnings  b is the percentage of earnings that are not paid as dividends  – reinvestment rate  –  ROI is the return on  –  Growth rate g = b x ROI  –  ROE = return on investment within the firm
