  • Simple Concept of Intrinsic Value Part 2

    I wrote a post recently on intrinsic value, and I received some comments and questions that made me think a lot of readers are still looking for a formula to calculate a stock’s value precisely. I really don’t think this is the case. I think the best result that an investor can hope to achieve when it comes to appraising business values is to come up with a fairly sizable range of values and then wait for the market to offer you a price that is significantly below the lower end of the range – which gives you both a margin of safety in the event your analysis is wrong and high returns on your investment if you’re right.


    Investing should be simple. The concept of intrinsic value is simple. The value of a business is simply the present value of the cash that you can pull out of it over time. Graham and Buffett both agreed that this is the intrinsic value of a security – either a bond or a stock. But it’s hard to determine the precise level of future cash flows of a business. I think both Graham and Buffett would agree that instead of trying to crunch numbers into a spreadsheet and using DCFs to value businesses, they thought of intrinsic value in terms of private owner value. Essentially, what is the normal future earning power of this business and what is that earning power worth to a rational private buyer? This is just a more practical way to think about what something is worth. What will a rational buyer pay for this business?

  • Joel Greenblatt's Market Secrets

    Why does value investing work? Here is what hedge fund star Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio) had to say:


    “Prices fluctuate more than values—so therein lies opportunity. Why do the prices fluctuate so widely when values can’t possibly? I will tell you the answer I have come up with: The answer is I don’t know and I don’t care. We could waste a lot of time about psychology but it always happens and it continues to happen. I just want to take advantage of it. We could sit there and figure it all out, but I like to keep it simple. It happens; it continues to happen; the opportunities are there.
