Valuation: 3 Different Easy Ways
6 Lectures 09:21

I will teach you a few different modeling techniques.

Valuation Methodologies Introduction

This one is my favorite as "less is more"....meaning less room for error.

Valuation Method 1: Target Price Based on P/E

This valuation methodology is great for companies that are not yet profitable.

Valuation Method 2: Target Price Based on P/R

I am not a fan of this methodology as there are too many independent variables....but I will show you an easier way to do it..

Valuation Method 3: Target Price Based on DCF


A Short Cut Way to Do DCF

Take an average of all valuation methodologies if you want the lowest margin of error when coming up with your target prices.
