Version 9 of the automated stock analysis sheet now projects expected earnings per share and calculates the forward PE. Some bugs have been corrected and minor improvements made.
List of features of the freefincal stock analyzer
The automated stock analysis sheet
- pulls financials from morningstar and analyzes them
- pulls adjusted stock price history from money control, and
- calculates intrinsic value six different ways!
It also pulls annual (standalone/consolidated) and quarterly financials from Value Research online. However, this is not used in any calculation.
Note: You need macros enabled. If it does not work from one network, try from another. It usually will not work if you try from your office.
Valuation models available:
1) Price Multiple Model
2) Sustainable Growth Rate
3) Book Value Growth Rate (Buffett’s approach to valuation)
4) Discounted Cash Flow (DCF)
All necessary links for learning each valuation model is provided in the Excel sheet itself. Following the flow of information in the sheet, a new investor should be able to understand how the valuation is done.
The sheet also calculates Piotroski Score for the last 9 financial years
Earnings Growth (EPS) Estimation
The earnings per share is projected with a simple linear fit in two ways: (1) using EPS vs year data and (2) using Log(EPS) vs year data. This is an extremely crude estimate and should be used with abundant caution.
The projected EPS can be used for calculated Forward PE. This is done in the price multiple model valuation sheet. A higher forward PE than current PE could indicate lower earnings in future (this is only a projection).
Use only for solid companies which are expected to consistently do well.
- Thanks to Gaurav Anand for pointing out an error in the Graham formula and Graham number sheet. This is now fixed.
How can this sheet be improved?
Please let me know additional features that can be incorporated and changes in the present format that will make the sheet useful. I would like the sheet to become more inviting.
Trivia: Version 1 was released on 25th Dec. 2014.
