What is valuation?

          Valuation of a stock in trade is the present value or worth of the stock. Let's understand with an example, you want to buy a shoe from market. So you go to the market and asks the shop owner the price of the shoes that you choose. If you get a quality shoe on low price then it is a great deal. On the other if you get it in high price then it is surely not a great deal.(here the price,low or high depends on the shoes quality,cloths,style etc.). Now this same formula is suitable for valuation of common stock.

Valuation of stock in trade:

          Your aim before invest in a stock may be earn more or secure your future. So you have to pick the right value stock. You shall get a value (stock) for your price (invest). Are you confused between value and price? Ok i explain the difference between value and price.

         Value is what you get (here it is bond,stocks etc.) and Price is what you pay (here it is money or bond etc.). If you find a value stock in low price then the stock is called undervalued. On the other hand, if you trade it on high price then it is called overvalued and it is not a great deal.
Valuation problems and solutions

Valuation of common stocks:

         For valuation of comany or stock it is not mandatory to caluculate or find the exact value of this stock(fair value) or company.. Just you have to calculate near fair value or an average value of this stock. Like you have to the man's size(like is he tall or short) not his height how tall he is. If stocks are trade in high price (basis of fair value) then it is overvalued.

Types of valuation:

     There are many way to calculate the right value of a stock. They are:

1) Net asset value method.
2) Sum of parts.
3) Discounnt cash flow method.
4) Precedent transaction analysis.
5)  comparable company analysis etc.

      Here i discuss sum of parts method. It is one of the easiest method of valuation.This type of valuation is elligible only for two types company.

       First,the company that manages the business in different fields. Imagine company 'S' manages different business like textiles,water bottle,consultancy etc. In this case you have to find the value of every company that is under on it.

Valuation of stock formula or valuation calculator:

Calculation of intrinsic value:

        I pick this formula from the "The Intelligent Investor" book. BUY NOW

       Value of stock=((E*(8.5+2G)*44)/Y

             G= growth rate of future 3 or 5 years.
             Y= average AAA corporate bond yield.(just search it google and yow will get the result".
        Let's understand it with an example: imagine a stock of B company's eps(earning per share) 20 and growth in next 5 years 10 percent(for this check last 5 years growth ) and Y is 7.2(just search on google about AAA corporate bond yield). Now E=20.G=10.Y=7.2. Putting this into the valuation of stock formula we get the value of this stock is 348.33.

 EPS 20
 GROWTH(in future) 10
 AAA corporate Bond 7.2
 Avg value 348.33

           =348.33(putting the valuation of stock formula)
