Current Valuation

Indicator Description

Enterprise Value can be a useful tool to compare companies with different capital structures. Long term liability and current cash or cash equivalents can have a huge impact on market valuation of a given company.

Enterprise Value

Market Cap + Debt

Enterprise Value is a firm valuation proxy that approximates the current market value of a company. It is typically used to determine the takeover or merger price of a firm. Unlike Market Cap, this measure takes into account the entire liquid asset, outstanding debt, and exotic equity instruments that the company has on its balance sheet. When a takeover occurs, the parent company will have to assume the target company's liabilities but will take possession of all cash and cash equivalents.

Current Valuation In A Nutshell

Current valuation is also important as that will give you the most update information on how the company is doing and what might be lowering or raising their numbers. Of course you can take a look at the quarterly reports or even semi annual reports, but the full annual report is what you want to keep the largest eye on. Not only that, you can dive into the reports and get a feel for what people are saying and thinking by looking at the executive commentary.

When looking at stock and companies, there are many ways to go about finding what their worth and their value, and a great place to search is by finding their current valuation. This data point could be in the form of enterprise value, which is probably the most common. Ultimately, the valuation of the company should give you an area of what the price of the stock should be, giving you a probably price target.

Closer Look at Current Valuation

Looking up and figuring the valuation will give you color to a stock chart and can clarify why things are the way they are. Valuation reports can also give you more details than just the enterprise value, which means it is important to fully understand why things are the way they are. Just like tools, you want to understand what makes them tick. Of course when you’re completing your own research, you many find that other data points work better, but this is certainly a great place to start and one to keep in your toolbox. If you ever have questions, join a trading and investing community and bounce ideas off of them as that is great place to receive real time feedback.
