Stock Value Based on FCF Valuation Model

If the per-share value of equity obtained from the model is lower than the share price, the stock is overvalued.

If the per-share value of equity obtained from the model is higher than the share price, the stock is undervalued.

If the per-share value of equity obtained from the model is the same as the share price, the stock is fairly valued.

  1. When the market price is higher than the intrinsic value.

    I have finished my FRM1 thanks to AnalystPrep. And now using AnalystPrep for my FRM2 preparation. Professor Forjan is brilliant. He gives such good explanations and analogies. And more than anything makes learning fun. A big thank you to Analystprep and Professor Forjan. 5 stars all the way!

    Professor James' videos are excellent for understanding the underlying theories behind financial engineering / financial analysis. The AnalystPrep videos were better than any of the others that I searched through on YouTube for providing a clear explanation of some concepts, such as Portfolio theory, CAPM, and Arbitrage Pricing theory. Watching these cleared up many of the unclarities I had in my head. Highly recommended.
