VALUATION AND FORECASTS Chapter 15 CHAPTER 15 OBJECTIVES Understand the roles of valuation and forecasting in financial statement analysis. Describe and compute three measures related to corporate value. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages associated with statistical and judgmental forecasting techniques. CHAPTER 15 OBJECTIVES (CONT.) Prepare pro forma financial statements based on your forecasts of future events. Identify the primary factors that

affect financial statement forecasts of a company or industry. VALUATION AND FORECAST OBJECTIVES Valuation The determination of somethings worth (e.g., a business entity) Share price is one measure of an entitys value (on a per share basis) Analysts often need more specific information than share price to make decisions (e.g., the timing of cash flows) VALUATION AND FORECAST OBJECTIVES (CONT.) Financial forecasts Project an entitys financial

statements Reflect an analysts assumptions about the future Compiled on a pro forma (as if) basis VALUATION METHODS Investors assessment of the worth of an firms income VALUATION METHODS (CONT.) Price to earnings approach

Captured by the price to earnings ratio (P-E ratio) Reflects an investors expectations about the future performance of a company A high P-E ratio means the market expects earnings to increase A low P-E ratio signals an expected decline in earnings Computed as: market price per share of stock / earnings per share VALUATION METHODS (CONT.) Price to cash flow approach A derivative of the P-E ratio Substitutes cash flow from operations for earnings when questions about earnings quality exist Computed as: market price per share of stock / operating cash flows per

share VALUATION METHODS (CONT.) Price to equity approach Alternative to the P-E (and cash flow to earnings ratio) Compares market value of a share of stock to its book value at one point in time Computed as: market price per share of stock / book value per share of stock eSTUFFS PRICE-EARNINGS RATIOS Market Measures 2003 2002 High capitalization 185

methods Mathematical procedures used to help forecast financial statements FORECASTING TECHNIQUES (CONT.) Statistical methods are based on characteristics exhibited in previous data or industry conditions Trendgeneral tendency or direction of events Cyclical behaviorstate of the economy, ranging from prosperity to recession Seasonalitychanges in activity level within

one reporting period Randomnessunforeseen events that affect financial performance FORECASTING TECHNIQUES (CONT.) Four common statistical methods Time series analysisextrapolates past trends into the future Exponential smoothingsimilar to time series analysis, but places greater weight on the more recent disclosures Decompostionspecifically accounts for trend, seasonality, cyclicality, and randomness in projecting the future

Linear regressionuses one or more variables (e.g., time) to predict a financial statement result (e.g., revenue) FORECASTING TECHNIQUES (CONT.) Drawbacks to statistical forecasting All models are complex Their methods are based on assumptions that must be meet for the model to be valid Caution: only sophisticated analysts should use mathematical methods Benefit: all analysts should consider factors such time, trend, and cyclicality when forecasting financial statements

FORECASTING TECHNIQUES (CONT.) Judgmental methods Alternative to statistical methods Based on informed opinion Acknowledges that forecasting is as much art as science FORECASTING TECHNIQUES (CONT.) Incorporates knowledge about the Economy Industry Entity Entitys previous financial statements Competition

FORECASTING TECHNIQUES (CONT.) Other forecasting considerations Analysts often forecast a range of outcomes, rather than a single point estimate They can create a best, worst, and most likely forecast Earnings compilations Offer a point of comparison for an analysts EPS forecast Capture the range of analysts EPS forecasts

Published by the media (e.g., First Call/Thompson Financial) PRO FORMA FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Statement construction Requires many assumptions about future events Does not require a forecast of every line item on the financial statements PRO FORMA FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONT.)

Dell Gateway VALUATION AND FORECAST OF THE PC INDUSTRY (CONT.) Apples operating activities will determine the direction of the company Optimistic perspective: the companys financial statements will improve if Technical innovations separate the company from its Wintel competitors Product development creates sustainable earnings Market share improves Consumers pay a premium for Apples value

added products VALUATION AND FORECAST OF THE PC INDUSTRY (CONT.) Pessimistic view: the company recent financial decline will continue because The market increasingly views PCs as commodities Apples intellectual activities are too costly Its competitors quickly mimic Apples technical innovations Market share continues to slide Revenues cannot support operating costs Cash cannot be generated by further

inventory reductions
