Stock Valuation Tutorial in 3 Easy Steps – Stock

Value, Valuing Stocks, Finance Stock Valuation Alright! Welcome back again to www.MBAbullshit.com.

So our topic for this video is Stock Valuation or how to value stocks or how valuable is

a stock or a share of stock. Remember, you can always go back to www.MBAbullshit.com

to check out more cool videos on these business topics. Before this video, you should already

understand Future Value, Present Value, Net Present Value, Value of a Perpetuity, and

Value of an Annuity. If you don’t understand those yet, then you may watch my other free

videos on these topics above. Alright, let’s get down to it.

First of all, just a quick overview, a “Stock” or a “Share of Stock” is a piece of paper

which says that you own part of a company or corporation, whatever. You can buy this

stock or sell this Stock to somebody else and usually you do this in a “Stock Exchange”

which is a place where people buy and sell stocks from each other. Or buy from each other,

sell to each other. Alright? Now the “Stock Value” which we are going

to compute in this video is different from the stock’s “Market Value” which is

the price that people actually and really pay for. Actually, price at which people actually

buy and sell stocks in the real stock exchange. So you might wonder why on earth are we going

to compute this if it’s different from the actual “Market Value” that people buy

and sell stocks. And the answer to that is we compute the “Stock Value” so that we

know if the Stock Market Value is cheap or expensive at a given time. So if for example

today, a stock is being sold in the market for $10, we can first compute the “Stock

Value” so that we know if ten dollars is too expensive or very cheap and a good bargain.

Alright? So that’s why you want to compute the “Stock Value.”

So now, where does the Stock’s value come from? Where does it come from? Well, first

of all, it comes from the share of profits that it pays out to you. So if you only share

a stock and the company makes money

and you own a part of that company by owning a share of stock of that company then the

company will pay you a share of its profits. And this share of profits is called the “Dividends.”

Alright? Now, the second main place where the stock’s

value comes from is the price that you can sell the stock in the future. So remember,

I said you can buy this stock and you can also sell it to somebody else if you don’t

want to own it anymore or if somebody offers you a good price for it or you can sell it

in the stock market or the stock exchange if it’s being sold at a good price. Alright?

So that’s where the stock’s value comes from.

Now let’s say a stock is now selling in the stock exchange at twenty four dollars

per share and it has a dividend of two dollars per year. You plan to sell it after three

years. In three years, the price of the stock is expected to go up to twenty five dollars.

So let’s just say that the discount rate, remember Net Present Value and Present Value

we have a discount rate which is usually the bank rate or the amount of interest you would

get from the bank. But in terms of stocks, it’s not necessarily the bank rate. Just

call it a “Discount Rate” but we use it in a similar way. I will show you in a while.

So the discount rate is eleven percent. So now, what is the value of the stock?

So now we use the Net Present Value formula. The Stock Value is two dollars. Remember you’re

keeping the stock for three years and you earn two dollars every year in dividend. So

the value of the stock comes from your two dollars in the first year plus your two dollars

in the second year plus your two dollars in the third year. Plus the value of the stock

also comes from the amount of money you will get in the future when you sell it and we

know it is twenty five dollars. You see? And then remember using Net Present Value formula,

we have to discount or we have to bring back the values of these cash flows, okay? Until

today so this two dollars you earn one year later, you have to bring it back one year.

One. And you bring it back one year using the discount rate.

So in the basic Net Present Value formula, we bring it back using the bank interest rate.

But with stocks we bring it back using what we call an “Expected Rate” or a “Required

Return.” We call it a “Required Return.” If you want to know more about that, you can

watch my other video on CAPM or the “Capital Asset Pricing Model” in another video. But

for now, if you do not know the Capital Asset Pricing Model, no problem, just believe me

when I tell you that we will use a “Discount Rate” of eleven percent instead of the bank

rate. The bank rate might be lower, maybe five percent or whatever.

Some professors will call it “Discount Rate.” Some professors will call it “Expected Rate.”

Some professors will call it a “Required Return.” Alright? So it doesn’t matter.

The point is that they will give you a certain percentage which you will use in the Net Present

Value formula so that you can bring back these values. One. Two. This is negative three years.

One, Two, Three. Okay? So that you can use it in the same Net Present Value formula to

find out the value of this stock today. Alright? So this is two dollars every year in dividends

and this is twenty five dollars at which you will sell the stock in the future. This is

the Discount Rate so that you can bring back the value using the Net Present Value formula.

This is negative one because it happens one year from now so we have to bring it one year.

One. This is negative two because it happens two years from now so to get the value today,

you bring it back two years. One. Two. This is negative three for the same reason. One.

Two. Three. And then also in the third year, you sell it for twenty five dollars, you have

to bring it back three years as well. One. Two. Three. Alright?

So just take note, that in this case these are both negative threes, right? It is not

negative three and then negative four because you get the dividend of two dollars per year

for three years and you also plan to sell it after three years. So you sell this at

more or less the same time that you get your last dividend. Okay. So now, using the Net

Present Value formula, you get the Stock Value of twenty three dollars and seventeen cents.

Thanks for uploading these. Very chic and east to understand…Love the way you use easy words to explain…Not alien languages….Thanks much….

@nootminwoo Thanks too Nootminwoo! Remember to click like with the thumbs up and share with your friends!

Just did!

how do you get $23.17 using 2(1.11)^-1+2(1.11)^-2+2(1.11)^-3+25(1.11)^-3???? how do you use the calculator for that?

Unfortunately different calculators have different buttons and language, so I wouldn't know how to do it on yours… cheers! :p

the problem is that we don't know what the price stock will be in the future…

do it by hand, its easier

Just wondering; when calculating the net present value why didn't you consider the initial cost of buying the share?!

@koolkid you could do that too; but in this case we simply calculated the NPV and then compared to the initial cost of buying the share. If you want to include the share buying cost in your NPV calculation, then you would simply need a positive number to know that you should buy the share or not. But we would not really be calculating the stock value itself. For the other people: confused with my explanation in this comment? Just ignore it and follow the video :p

Hmm, now I get it. Thanks!!

Put some problems on pv and FB

Hey Admin, is there any way i can send you a private message? I need your insight on something. or email me at [email protected]….. Appreciated!

Hi how do you determine the discount rate if i go only the company website under invertor page?

Â Stock Exchange Market is simply the best way to trade if you know how toÂ read the trends or have a very good strategy.

More MBA bullshit! I came here or a refresher and feeling good about my TVM skills but thought this video was very confusing.

so simple to understand Thanks

Simple n easy to grasp. Thank u.

how did you arrive with 23.17 ?

coz I arrived at 23.14 the computation I did was 2/(1.11)^-1 + 2/(1.11)^-2+ 2/(1.11)^-3+25/(1.11)^-3 = $23.14. any error with this ?? correction please.. ðŸ˜€ ty

You make it so simple.. many thanks

let"'sa say you have a different discourant rate at the third year, how would you find the present value?

really love your user name LMAO

Stock valuation is tricky and I think many methods should be used, and check if there is similar price target for many valuation methods.

Is tue discpunt rate here/required rate of return same as any prevailing (published) market rate?

How do you know the future expected price of the stock? That's

the problem!

where the hell $23.17 come from?

*i'm not a math guy, so i don't get it..
