some specific questions in the calculation of cash flows
Some specific questions in the calculation of cash flows
  • Include all incidental effects
  • Do not forget working capital requirements
  • Forget sunk costs
  • Include opportunity costs
  • Be careful about inflation
  • Depreciation
  • Financing

FIN 819: lecture 3

free cash flows calculation
Free cash flows calculation
  • Free cash flows = cash flows from operations + cash flows from the change in working capital + cash flows from capital investment and disposal

FIN 819: lecture 3

calculating cash flows from operations
Calculating cash flows from operations
  • Method 1
    • Cash flows from operations =revenue –cost (cash expenses) – tax payment
  • Methods 2
    • Cash flows from operations = accounting profit + depreciation
  • Method 3
    • Cash flows from operations =(revenue –cost)*(1-tax rate) + depreciation *tax rate

Net investment = total investment - depreciation

H - Time horizon for your investment.

Example
  • George has bought one IBM share in the beginning of this year and decides to hold this share until next year. The expected dividend this year is $10 per share and the stock is expected to sell at $110 per share in the end of the year. If the cost of the capital is 10%, what is the current stock price?

Valuing common stocks using dividends

If we forecast no growth, and plan to hold out stock indefinitely, we will then value the stock as the PV of a PERPETUITY.

Assumes all earnings are paid to shareholders.

FIN 819: lecture 4

example24
Example
  • Suppose that a stock is going to pay a dividend of $3 every year forever. If the discount rate is 10%, what is the stock price for the following cases:
    • (a) you invest and hold it forever?
    • (b) you invest and hold it for two years?
    • (c) you invest and hold it for 20 years?

FIN 819: lecture 4

solution25
Solution
  • (a) P0=3/0.1=$30
  • (b)P0=PV (annuity) + PV( the stock price at year 2)

= 3/1.1 + 3/1.12+(3/0.1)/1.12

= 3/0.1=$30

(c) P0=PV (annuity of 20 years) +

PV (the stock price at the year of 20)

example27
Example
  • Suppose that a stock is going to pay a dividend of $3 next year. Dividends grow at a growth rate of 3%. If the discount rate is 10%, what is the stock price for the following cases:
    • (a) you buy and hold it forever?
    • (b) you buy and hold it for two years?
    • (c) you buy and hold it for 20 years?

FIN 819: lecture 4

solution28
Solution
  • (a) P0=3/(0.1-0.03)=$42.86
  • (b)P0=PV (annuity) + PV( the stock price at year 2)

= 3/1.1 + 3*1.03/1.12+(3*1.032/(0.1- 0.03))/1.12

= 3/(0.1-0.03)=$42.86

Capitalization rate

Expected Return- The percentage yield that an investor forecasts from a specific investment over a set period of time. Sometimes called the market capitalization rate.

Example-

some terms about dividend growth rates
Some terms about dividend growth rates
  • If a firm elects to pay a lower dividend, and reinvest the funds, the stock price may increase because future dividends may be higher.

Payout Ratio - Fraction of earnings paid out as dividends

Plowback Ratio - Fraction of earnings retained by the firm.

FIN 819: lecture 4

deriving the dividend growth rate g
Deriving the dividend growth rate g

Growth can be derived from applying the return on equity to the percentage of earnings plowed back into operations.

g = return on equity X plowback ratio

FIN 819: lecture 4

example37
Example

Our company forecasts to pay a $5.00 dividend next year, which represents 100% of its earnings. This will provide investors with a 12% expected return. Instead, we decide to plow back 40% of the earnings at the firm’s current return on equity of 20%. What is the value of the stock before and after the plowback decision?

FIN 819: lecture 4

solution38
Solution
  • Without growth
  • With growth

FIN 819: lecture 4

example continued
Example (continued)

If the company did not plowback some earnings, the stock price would remain at $41.67. With the plowback, the price rose to $75.00.

The difference between these two numbers (75.00-41.67=33.33) is called the Present Value of Growth Opportunities (PVGO).

Valuing common stocks using earnings
  • We often use earnings to value stocks as
  • What is the relationship between this formula and the dividend growth formula?

FIN 819: lecture 4

example41
Example
  • Firm A has a market capitalization rate of 15%. The earnings are expected to be $8.33 per share next year. The plowback ratio is 0.4 and ROE is 25%. Every investment in year i is to yield a simple perpetuity starting in year (i+1) with each cash flow equal to total investment times ROE. All the investments have the same capitalization rate.
    • (a) Using the formula P=ESP1/r + PVGO to calculate the stock price
    • (b) If ROE is increased, what will happen to the stock price? Why?
    • (c) Use the dividend model to calculate the stock price?
    • (d) What have you found?
    • (e) Think about why you have this kind of result?

FIN 819: lecture 4

simple solution
Simple Solution

(a)

g=10%, EPS1/r=8.33/0.15=$55.56

PVGO=NPV1/(r-g)=2.22/(0.15- 0.1)=$44.44, P=$100

(b) The price will be increased

(c) P=Div1/(r-g)=5/(0.15-0.1)=$100

Valuing common stocks using FCF (free cash flows)

  • Free Cash Flows (FCF) should be the theoretical basis for all PV calculations.
  • FCF is a more accurate measurement of PV than either Div or EPS.
  • The market price does not always reflect the PV of FCF.
  • When valuing a business for purchase, always use FCF.

How to estimate the horizon value?
  • It is very difficult to forecast or estimate the horizon value. There are several ideas that may be used to estimate the horizon value.
    • Competition
    • Constant growth rate

another example
Another example

Imagine Corporation has just paid a dividend of $0.40 per share. The dividends are expected to grow at 30% per year for the next two years and at 5% per year thereafter. If the required rate of return in the stock is 15% (APR), calculate the current stock price.

FIN 819: lecture 4

solution51
Solution
  • Answer:
  • First: visualize the cash flow pattern;
    • C1, C2 and P2
  • Then, you know what to do?
  • P0 = [(0.4 *1.3)/1.15] + [(0.4 * 1.3^2)/(1.15^2)] + [(0.4 * 1.3^2*1.05)/((1.15^2 * (.15 -.05))] = $6.33

another cash flow problem
Another cash flow problem!

Firm Excellent has an old packaging machine that can be used for another 3 years. The remaining book value for this old machine is $15,000, which can be depreciated in the next three years by using the straight-line depreciation approach. If the old packaging machine is used, the annual total cost of operation, labor and maintenance is $10,000. In the market, the new packaging machine is available now at the price of $50,000, which will increase by 5% annually. Based on Excellent’s experience, the new packaging machine will be used forever. The capital investment cost of the new package machine will be depreciated in the next 10 years by using the straight-line depreciation approach. The annual total cost of operation, labor and maintenance will be $8,000 when the new package machine is used.

Questions:

a. What is the valuation horizon used in this problem?

b. Should Excellent invest in the new packaging machine now or

wait three years later?

bonds
Bonds
  • Bond – a security or a financial instrument that obligates the issuer (borrower) to make specified payments to the bondholder during some time horizon.
  • Coupon - The interest payments made to the bondholder.
  • Face Value (Par Value, Principal or Maturity Value) - Payment at the maturity of the bond.
  • Coupon Rate - Annual interest payment, as a percentage of face value.

FIN 819: lecture 4

bonds54
Bonds
  • A bond also has (legal) rights attached to it:
    • if the borrower doesn’t make the required payments, bondholders can force bankruptcy proceedings
    • in the event of bankruptcy, bond holders get paid before equity holders

    • The discount rate is different from the coupon rate.

WARNING

The coupon rate IS NOT the discount rate used in the Present Value calculations.

The coupon rate merely tells us what cash flow the bond will produce.

Since the coupon rate is listed as a %, this misconception is quite common.

The price of a bond is the Present Value of all cash flows generated by the bond (i.e. coupons and face value) discounted at the required rate of return.

zero coupon bonds
Zero coupon bonds
  • Zero coupon bonds are the simplest type of bond (also called stripped bonds, discount bonds)
  • You buy a zero coupon bond today (cash outflow) and you get paid back the bond’s face value at some point in the future (called the bond’s maturity )
