You can see below pictures for example...

3.

**Cash flow growth rate**is a bit troublesome... You need to obtain the FCF for every last 5 years and determine the average growth rate.4.

**Shares outstanding**- Many people do not know how to go get this number. Above is one picture on how to easily retrieve it.. Just Ctrl + F and search for shares outstanding in the Annual Report.. and there it is!

5. Last but not least, the

**discount rate**is usually set at the 3 months US Treasury rate in the past. However, It can be adjusted to how much return do you wish to obtain from this investment. E.g. If you wish to get 10% return annually from the stock, just enter "10" inside the box! Simple as that!

Hi, thanks for your post. I can't get the figure, how you do the calculation for the "Cash Flow Growth Rate?

ReplyDeleteOh.. For that its a bit tedious.

ReplyDeleteYou have to calculate the Free Cash Flow of the company for the past 5 years.

Measure the geometric growth rate of the figures and you will get the growth rate.

To be honest.. You can just take prev year and this year figures to compare and see its growth. Predict how the company will fare and estimate a growth rate depending on its prospects for the future.

Hope it helps..

hi, i downloaded your intrinsic value calculator. trying to key in the data for stock: hartalega(HART) - the annual report is here http://hartalega.listedcompany.com/misc/ar2012.pdf, i just would like to make sure on the operating cash flow (page 63) ...

ReplyDeleteis it 291,708,771 minus 35,444,185 ?

i see your example on the blog. but this company cash flow statement having more itemize.. not sure if my understanding is correct?

Hi Kate, yes you are right... minus the (35,444,185) from the "Purchase of property, plant and equipment".. :)

DeleteHi James,

ReplyDeleteThank you for sharing about how to calculate the intrinisic value of stock.

I was referring to your CapMalls example.

With regards to the Operating Cash Flow of $63 million. I could not get this figure after looking at the 2009 financial reports. Pls see page 8 of the financial statements http://capitamallsasia.listedcompany.com/newsroom/20100203_074208_JS8_6EA5BAACFAD354DD482576BE002BA151.1.pdf .

I could only find out that the Operating profit before working capital changes is $60,130,000. But I still do not know how you calculate it to $63mil for the Operating Cash Flow.

Pls advise the variables that you obtained from the financial report from the link above. Thank you.

Hi Linz,

DeleteI was using the OSIM as an example..

Can you enlighten me if you seen another example from other posts?

Regards,

James

Hi James,

ReplyDeleteI was referring to your Excel sheet example, where it stated about the CapMalls Operating Cash Flow in 2009.

I could only find out that the Operating profit before working capital changes is $60,130,000. Purchase of property, plant and equipment (5,083). Therefore the Operating Cash Flow should be $55 mil instead of $63 mil, which was stated in your Excel sheet which I downloaded off your website.

Pls advise on how you got $63mil and not $55mil.

Thank you.

Hi Linz,

DeleteOmg.. i am so sorry.. it is not updated. As in the figures are not correctly placed. The file has been quite some time ago before i uploaded it.

So sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Regards,

James

ok noted. thanks.

DeleteJames, kate again,

ReplyDeletethe calculator i downloaded.

just wanna make sure on "current EPS" at first sheet.

for company Zhulian http://www.bloomberg.com/quote/ZHCB:MK

inst correct to use: 0.2406?

Earnings Per Share (MYR) (ttm) 0.2406

Hi Kate,

DeleteYou can use that. Because ttm stands for trailing twelve months so it's more accurate.

But for me i will just use the EPS from Annual Report :)

Doesn't make a lot of difference i think..

The intrinsic value is just an estimate.. more important to look at fundamentals.

Cheers,

James

Hi James,

ReplyDeleteIs Cash flow growth rate = Operating Income Growth Rate?

And for example, using Golden Agri-Resources Ltd.(E5H), the Cash Flow growth rate is 16.94% for average 5 years. Can you help to confirm? Thanks

Regards

Roy

Hi Roy,

DeleteSorry for the delay in reply. Been busy with work.

Can you provide me the link as to the information on how you obtained it first?

Regards,

James

Hi James

DeleteThanks for your reply..

I am trying to calculate the IV of Golden Agri-Resources Ltd (E5H) using Discounted Cash Flows method. However, I am not sure if my calculation is correct. Could you please advice if my IV is correct.

Discounted Cash Flows:

Operating Cash Flow (current) - $0.88 millions

Cash flow growth rate - 10.99%

No. of Shares Outstanding - 12.3 millions

Discount Rate - 10%

Final IV --- $0.75

Regards

Roy

Hi Roy, how did you get "Operating Cash Flow (current) - $0.88 millions"?

DeleteGood day James,

ReplyDeleteI tried using your Calculator to calculate the IV of Singtel,

could i just confirm whether the values I filled in are correct?

Operating cash flow current : $3462 million

cash flow growth rate: 0.0255%

no of shares outstanding: 15,971.9 millions

dis rate: 0.1%

& the result i got for intrinsic value of Singtel shares was $2.16.

look forward to your reply,

regards,

Barney

Good day barney,

DeleteYeah you are right.

You can check out Singtel Financial Summary here as well http://info.singtel.com/node/2970.

Singtel has pretty much stayed stagnant. All i can think of it is a Cash Cow.. giving out stable yield. Unless there is some growth prospects it is targeting..

Happy Investing!

James

Thanks James,

DeleteThis would mean that Singtel is "severely overvalued" ? Also, could i ask why are discount rates based on US t-bills and not sg t bills?

Hi Barney,

DeleteIt is just a common practice because US is the BIG BOSS... haha.. Like why valuation has to be done this way for example.

Cheers,

James

There are so many assumptions that the model makes especially on the discount rate.

ReplyDeleteDiscount rate can't be the US treasury rate (4% in the screenshot) as it does not incorporate the riskiness of the stock. (Using 4% will give an overvalued price)

To be accurate, either the cost of equity or WACC should be used depending on the model being used.

Hi,

DeleteThanks for your input. But discount rate is usually based on "r" which is required rate of return. And i have mentioned in my post the following:

"Last but not least, the discount rate is usually set at the 3 months US Treasury rate in the past. However, It can be adjusted to how much return do you wish to obtain from this investment. E.g. If you wish to get 10% return annually from the stock, just enter "10" inside the box! Simple as that!"

Thanks,

James

Hi James,

ReplyDeleteHow do we calculate Intrinsic Value if the Operating Cash Flow is negative?

Regards

Roy

Good day Sir.

ReplyDeleteQuick question. Since the calculator produces a computation using the EPS and another using the EPS, and more often than not, even if you put in the accurate figures, the result of the two would be different. My question now, is which do I follow? Do I follow the price result which is the smallest and then determine is 50% discount and that would be my buy price? Thank you so much for your prompt reply.

Hi,

DeleteI suggest you can take the smaller EPS to be on the safe side :)

Cheers,

James

Hi James,

ReplyDeleteGood Day to you!

If latest annual report is 2011, do I take quarterly unaudited report for calculation? Example, Tambun http://tambunindah.investor.net.my/annual-reports. Also, how to determine Cash Flow Growth Rate & Discount Rate?
