Doubts in Finance
I was working on valuation of high growth companies.
When I calculate the Terminal value, the formula used is:

Final Cash Flow(1+g)/(k-g)

where k = Discount Rate
and g = Long-Term Cash Flow Growth Rate

In my case, k = 8% and g is 10%, this generally doesn't happen and my valuation is -ve.

I am not sure where I am making some mistake. Any ideas???

Re: Doubts in Corporate Finance
I am not sure if your assumptions are right or not.
Isn't a growth rate of 10% too high?

I guess you can try verifying those rates... :?:

Re: Doubts in Corporate Finance
Did you try to use comparable co.s method to see how much terminal value you get?

Re: Doubts in Corporate Finance
Hi Ritesh,

The formula that you are using comes from a sum of a Geometric Progression. If you go back to the derivation of this formula, the basic assumption is k>g.

So, in your case the formula is not valid because k<g.

Re: Doubts in Corporate Finance
Hi Neetu,
Few things you should keep in mind while using that formula is that:
For high growing companies you estimate the years for which the company will remain a high growth firm, and the stages in which it will finally taper down to the perpetual growth (which in most cases will be the GDP growth rate), the formula you have put in is only applicable for the perpetual growth case and not for high-growth years and hence "k" will be greater than "g".
Let me know in case any thing else needs to be clarified.

Re: Doubts in Corporate Finance
I agree with Nikhil.

You can use the H-model for such valuations.

Re: Monte Carlo Simulation Analysis for Finance
What exactly do you want to know?
There are software like @Risk and Crystal Ball that can help you in Monte Carlo Simulation.

Re: Monte Carlo Simulation Analysis for Finance
Hi Sneha & Sougata,

I am CFA-3 level candidate. Actually, most probabilistic financial modeling software are based on Monte Carlo analysis, a risk analysis tool used for managing uncertainty. In simple terms, Monte Carlo analysis combines distributions, and thereby propagating more than just summary statistics. Rather than analytic calculations, Monte Carlo analysis uses intensive random number generation.

A Monte Carlo analysis can be quite easily developed using a random number generator. However several excellent Excel based templates, Excel add-ins and enterprise-grade Monte Carlo simulation software exist that are able to perform random number generation iterations to about 10,000 iterations. Examples of Monte Carlo simulation software include Crystal Ball, @Risk and others, which are readily accessible to financial analysts.

While a Monte Carlo simulation analysis using several thousands of iterations may be perceived as being more analytically robust, invalid statistical assumptions and distributions can create invalid results, leading to inappropriate results. Financial analysts new to statistical and probabilistic approaches are therefore well advised to have a firm understanding of the concept of uncertainty and statistical analysis before attempting Monte Carlo simulation analysis for financial modeling and analysis.

Short hedge and Long Hedge
How to decide weather to go for short hedge or long hedge on the basis of Beta (Systematic Risk) ?

Re: Short hedge and Long Hedge
I have been given Beta (systematic Risk) as 1.4. I have been asked to tell whether I am in long position or short. Also to suggest which hedging strategy would be better ? My Company's Portfolio is \$20 million.

How can we decide our existing positions (long or short) on th basis of Beta ?

Dear Vaibhav here my 50 cents
Beta is mathematicalmeasure of volatility of a asset compared to a index or group of assets.Beta value is obtained by analyzing the vast past data of movement of asset and index.So fo taking Long & short position U cant rely on
beta only as beta shows how the price of asset moved compratively to index.

For taking Long & short hedge On any asset class u have to analyze macro and micro economic conditions ,other economical trends ,Big news & lot of other aspects which can be effected by Poltical,demographical events.

Re: Short hedge and Long Hedge
Dear Satyam,
Let me just give you my complete problem statement.

Question: I am a portfolio manager with a \$20 million growth portfolio that has beta of 1.4 relative to the S&P 500. The S&P 500 futures are trading at 1,150 and the multiplier is 250. I would like to hedge my exposure to market risk over next few months. I have to identify whether a long or short hedge is appropriate.

Now I am confused how to answer on the basis of given information.

Dear vaibhav,
I am not expert in this domain .But here my 50 cents
You have a idea how Ur portfolio is moving relative to S&P by visualising beta .Now u have to analyze the how the S&P500 is going to move or where u wana bet.If u believe S&P will show volatility Or u are certain abt its direction U can enter in strategy accordingly.

k should be greater than g to apply this formula .
the discount calculation or the or the growth rate you have calculated might be wrong .

Common errors in the valuation process (DCF)
The objective of this paper is to present the common errors in the valuation process to estimate the intrinsic value of a company/asset. The discounting cash flow (DCF) approach is considered to be the most accurate (theoretically), flexible and widely used method. It is for that reason that most analysts prefer to use it for valuing a company/asset. In this paper, we will give attention to some conceptual errors when applying the DCF approach.
