    Valuations - 30 Intrinsic Value Estimations in the style of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger
     
    [product thumbnail]

    This book offers 30 sample “intrinsic value per share” business valuations in the style that Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger may use. In each case the author tried to simulate an approach that they would take to valuing a business, based on what they have written and talked about. However, all of the growth assumptions used are the author's own. No consultation nor endorsement was sought with Mr. Buffett or his business partner Mr. Munger. The examples given are chosen for educational and illustrative purposes only.

    The valuation cases are estimations written in a style that emphasizes a focus on free cash flow and the number of shares outstanding. Readers are also repeatedly encouraged to think about the business’ competitive position. In reality, these businesses may outperform or they may underperform any of the author's projections.

    This review is from: Valuations - 30 Intrinsic Value Estimations in the style of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger (Paperback)

     

    "Valuations" by Bud Labitan is a concise, direct approach to determine whether a certain company's stock price would be considered a bargain at its current market price. The case studies in this book examine the intrinsic values per share of the most important businesses that govern our economic lives today. These companies are all commonly known by the average investor. It is intriguing to decide if a specific company for which the investor consumes their products and services are worth your investment dollars. The author emphasizes Free Cash Flow in his estimates to calculate "intrinsic value". By using the examples and formula the author provides, the reader can easily calculate "intrinsic" value for any other company he or she chooses to research and then determine if that company's stock is a bargain or not. Overall I would consider "Valuations" a must read for all students studying behavorial finance simply for its case studies alone. For the average investor, this book can help you justify your purchase for a certain stock. I learned a lot from this book!
