The GF Value represents the current intrinsic value of a stock derived from our exclusive method. The GF Value Line on our summary page gives an overview of the fair value that the stock should be traded at. It is calculated based on three factors:

  1. Historical multiples (PE Ratio, PS Ratio, PB Ratio and Price-to-Free-Cash-Flow) that the stock has traded at.
  2. GuruFocus adjustment factor based on the company’s past returns and growth.
  3. Future estimates of the business performance.

We believe the GF Value Line is the fair value that the stock should be traded at. The stock price will most likely fluctuate around the GF Value Line. If the stock price is significantly above the GF Value Line, it is overvalued and its future return is likely to be poor. On the other hand, if it is significantly below the GF Value Line, its future return will likely be higher.

Please note, "Possible Value Trap, Think Twice" is for the companies that look very undervalued, but either in the long term trend of business decline, or in financial distress.

As of today (2024-04-16), First Solar's share price is $172.99. First Solar's GF Value is $163.66. Therefore, First Solar's Price-to-GF-Value for today is 1.06.
