It’s Earnings That Count: Forget the next Infy; Can you identify the next Satyam?

In this guest post, R. Srivatsan explains how to differentiate a good business from a bad one, using a stock valuation technique known as Earnings Power Box, introduced by Hewitt Heiserman, Jr, in his book,  “It’s Earnings That Count: Finding Stocks with Earnings Power for Long-Term Profits”.  Following his suggestion, I have added this feature in the freefincal automated stock analyzer.

His post is in the form a presentation and I have converted each slide into an image. It is easy to read and understand. By the way, Last few tickets are also available for the 3rd New Delhi event to be held on April 23rd, 2017 (link below).

Srivatsan acknowledges his friend Mr. Punith Sacherla for his business insights, catchy title and suggestions on the draft presentation.

Details of the calculation can be found here. here.

  1. This article is great. If we strictly follow this, most of the so called blue chip Infra/Capital goods/Engg/Commodity stocks will fail miserably. I await the stock analyser for this concept which he has proposed to put it up tomorrow.

  2. Dear Professor/Guru,
    Thanks to you and special thanks to Mr.R.Srivatsan and Mr. Punith Sacherla for providing one more direction to analyse the buisness.

    Thanks for valuable time spent.

    Regards
    Jig

  3. Hello Sir, Great article and very easy to understand. I have one query, cant we use Cash Flow From Operation instead of Net profit as net profit is accounting number while real cash is in cash flow from operation. Please help me with the doubt.
