Presentation Transcript
  • Stock speculation is very risky
  • Do not trade with more than you can afford to lose.
  • Seek professional investment advice.
  • This is not investment advice.
  • No warranties, you are on your own.
what makes stocks cheap
What Makes Stocks Cheap?
  • Stocks are cheap when the underlying value of the stock is much less than the current price
    • Rubber band
  • Price is much less than value = cheap
  • NOT future value – actual, hard, present value
  • No pie in the sky
what is value
What is VALUE?
  • Value is almost always based on two things
  • 1. Assets
  • 2. Earnings
  • The other things claimed to be value – reputation, goodwill, good management, blah, blah, have to show up in earnings to be valuable
  • Price earnings ratio – low P/E is good
  • You put $100,000 in a bank Certificate of Deposit (CD) for a year and get 2% interest
  • You paid 50 times earnings = the price of the CD divided by the earnings (interest)
  • How smart is this when you can easily find stocks selling at 10 times earnings or less?
  • But stocks\' prices change and CDs are insured
earnings yield
Earnings Yield
  • If the stock sells at $10 and makes $1.00 per share in earnings, the price-earnings ratio is ten
  • And the “earnings yield is 10%
  • In other words, all things being equal, your stock should grow 10% per year
valuing assets
Valuing Assets
  • Cash – no haircut = 100%
  • Receivables – not all may be collected
  • Inventory – may be stale – how fast does it turn
  • Property, plant and equipment – what price was it bought at, how much deprecation
  • Intangibles – I usually value at zero, can be inflated
shareholders equity
Shareholders Equity
  • Adjust for preferred stock, warrants, etc.
  • Treasury stock – At what price does the company buy its own stock?
  • Calculate book value per share
cash and working capital
Cash and Working Capital
  • Calculate cash per share, working capital per share
  • Working Capital is current assets minus current liabilities
  • Calculate current ratio by dividing current assets by current liabilities – two or better is good
summary buy cheap stocks
Summary – Buy Cheap Stocks
