Use following free calculators and our database to determine the fair value of a stock.
1. Simple Fair Value Calculator:
Insert earnings per share (EPS) & revenue growth (%) to receive the approximate fair value (intrinsic value) of the stock.
2. Advanced Fair Value Calculator:
Insert earnings per share (EPS), cash flow per share, earnings growth, revenue growth, return on equity, EBIT margin & book value per share to receive a more accurate fair value.
3. Auxiliary Calculators:
Our Auxiliary calculators complement our main calculators by adding a layer of historical average on the main calculators. By using historical averages to adjust the fair value derived from the main calculators, we aim to eliminate any short term errors that might have crept in. Investors however have the freedom to calculate their own average numbers or simply use the last available key figure.
The required key figures for various fundamental analysis can be found on relevant stock market websites like Yahoo Finance. One can enter the name of the stock and find the required data under the “fundamental ratio/financials” tab.
Our premium membership eliminates all this hassle for you by providing the fair values to more than 35.000 stocks.
Insert EPS and Growth into this calculator to get the approximate fair value of the stock. Use the earning per share and for growth the annual increase of revenue in %.
Guidelines for using the Fair Value Calculator:
Our premium membership allows you access to our vast repertoire of valuation tools that will allow you to determine the fair value of the stock in consideration and determine its undervaluation/overvaluation.
Markets tend to converge on fair value over time and an undervalued stock will soon find its market price rising to meet its fair value.
Insert the earnings per share, cash flow per share, earnings growth in %, revenue growth in %, return on equity in %, EBIT margin in % and book value per share into this advanced calculator to calculate a detailed and precise fair value.
Kindly note that while calculating fair value of a stock in a foreign currency, the same must be converted to EURO and EURO values are to be inserted into the respective fields.
Once the fair value is received, it can be reconverted into the original currency. All entered values must be positive and at least 0.1
The auxiliary calculators determine the average of the EPS and the revenue growth. The results are entered into the calculators above.
The influence of historical data over several years makes the result more accurate. All entered values must be positive and at least 1!
Our free manual calculators require fundamental data as input which can be sourced from the finance portal of your choice. In our example we have used Yahoo Finance (finance.yahoo.com) as our portal for sourcing information about Apple Inc. Look out for the tabs “Financials” and “Statistics” to get a list of annual values and key figures respectively.
Our Premium membership saves you all the hassle by loading all the needed information directly from our database so that calculation of fair value requires only a click of a button!
One can find the EPS of a company on the financial tab at Yahoo Finance under the header of “Reported EPS”. Use the diluted EPS and try to calculate an average value for the past few years. In our example of Apple, an EPS of 11 would be the average. One can use our range of auxiliary calculators to derive a precise value for the average as well.
Cashflow per share: Go to "financials" and switch to "Cash Flow". Look for the Free Cash Flow and divide the Free Cashflow through the number of outstanding stocks. You find the number of outstanding stocks on the "Statistic" page at "Share Statistics".
The result will be the Cashflow per Share. For Apple the Cashflow per share should be about 14 for 2019.
Free Cashflow 2019: 63.97B / Shares Outstanding 4.3B = Free Cashflow per Share of 14,87.
Growth EPS: To define the growth of the earnings per share paste the Diluted EPS numbers (you used before) for every year into the average auxiliary calculator on this site. The result of EPS growth will be 21.16%
Growth Revenue: To define the revenue growth got to the "Financials" page on Yahoo finance again. Here you can find the Total Revenue.
Now you have to paste the revenue number for every year again into the growth calculator on this site. In this case we used the TTM value as the latest number. The result for the average revenue is therefore 11.36%
Return on Equity: To find the Return on Equity switch to the tab "Statistics" on Yahoo finance. Under the point "Management Effectiveness" you find the Return on Equity (ROE) is 56%.
EBIT Marge: Look for the Data "Operating Margin" on the same page. This figure is a bit higher than 24%.
Book Value per Share: This metric is also shown on the same Page. In the example of Apple its 20.
Now paste the fundamental key data of Apple into the advanced fair value calculator. The calculator will give you the fair price of Apple.
If you did it correctly, the calculator will show you the Fair Value of Apple Inc. My result for the fair value of Apple is 281.57 USD
Note: The fair value displayed will be in the same currency that was used for EPS and Cashflow per share. The final step is to compare the calculated fair value of the stock with the traded price of the stock.
In our case, Apple was trading at 240 USD on that day making it fairly undervalued and attractive for purchase. This is the essence of value investing. Find value stocks trading at a price lower than fair value and purchase them. These stocks are likely to perform better as they appreciate to their fair value.
