Valuation and Pricing: The Damodaran's view


While the place of Investors sentiments and biases is constantly being avoided in the valuation of Stocks by Investment analyst, it is important to understand what the value of a stock is, why it is so important to be able to properly value a stock and the consequent effect of this on pricing in the Industry.


Valuation and the danger of following the crowd

They must know something that I don't - why this can be misleading


Why is pricing any different from valuation? Does the price of an item not reflect the value of the item? Well, not always. The value of a stock lies in its intrinsic value which is reflected loudly in the figures of the Company's financial statement. It is the future cash flows from a Security discounted to the present value. This would include all future dividends including the future cash flow that is to emanate from selling that stock, discounted to their present value. Why then could an Investor be misled?


An Investor's initial valuation of a Company that is unfamiliar is often less subjective, but what happens when the value derived is far from what the market is saying, ignoring the activity of Information bias and the imperfection of an underdeveloped markets? The Investor like the doubting lemming in the diagram above is now faced with the option of either following the crowd and giving in to the pressure from the Market or holding on to the value in his valuation. The price of an item is the value awarded to that item by the crowd. This can sometimes be misleading! The pressure to be in tune with the market could affect assumptions and estimates in valuation which would in turn affect an Analyst value for a Company or its Stock since Valuation is a craft; you get better by constantly doing it as you almost can't master it.


Valuation and the distraction from noises in Financial Statements


When valuing a company, your attention as an Analyst should be on the Future Cashflow that holding its Stock would produce. Take for example a company that has had a negative cash flow for more than three years, this is mostly found in Startups. You as an Investor should logically not pay a dime for such a Stock, but if this is the case, the very essence of valuation which is to determine the possible future cash flow that could be generated from an asset or Stock is ignored.


The attention on value which is defined as the future cash flow that would arise from the ownership of a stock or an asset has caused certain financial statement items to be treated differently from the traditional accounting method to communicate the possible value that would emanate from such items and their treatments. Examples of such items are Research and Development, Lease expense, licenses, and a strong brand name among others.


Paying attention to value rather than price would also influence your treatment of both operating and Financial synergy in Mergers and Acquisition. The value of anything derives from the value of cash flow that can be generated out of it.
