This Intrinsic Value Calculator is based on Warren Buffett "Ten Cap Price" otherwise known as "Owner Earnings" calculation. Buffett is calling Owner Earnings: "the relevant item for valuation purposes - both for investors in buying stocks and for managers in buying entire businesses."
Per Warren Buffett Value Investment Theory the buy decision should be based on several factors:
1. Company must have competitive advantage...
2. Company performed admirably in the past 10 years, recovered after market correction(s) and recession(s)...
3. Company must have long term prospects - be relevant in 10 years from now...
4. Company's market price should be 20-30% less than calculated intrinsic value - margin of safety price.
The logical question you would ask is how is it possible for such a good company to have the market price 20-30% bellow intrinsic value? The answer is: YES it's possible due to various reasons. The potential reasons could include: bad news about the company, company's industry is out of market favor, market is in correction or recession...YES, Recession!
