Stock market value investing

X-FIN.com is a leading independent value investing web site. We provide investors with the best stock valuation methodology and allow them to calculate online intrinsic values of common stocks using automatically-fed financial data and a set of changeable assumptions.

Our goal is to be the most authoritative source on common stock valuation and provide the best analytical tools for a growing audience of self-directed value investors.

Intrinsic value (which is also often called 'fundamental value') of a company and its common stock is calculated here using the Chepakovich Valuation Model - the most advanced general valuation model built on a robust theoretical foundation.

Intrinsic value of a stock is defined as the present value of future cash flows an investor in a company's common stock reasonably expects to receive as a return on his investment and compensation for the risk associated with equity investment in that particular company.

There are many uncertainties in regard to magnitude and timing of these future cash flows and any estimation of intrinsic value by anyone should be treated with a fair amount of caution: nobody knows what will happen in the future.

There is no guarantee that the company's stock will ever trade at the level of its intrinsic value estimation, but there is plenty of evidence that the stock's market price and its intrinsic value tend to converge.

Value investing as a distinctive discipline was first formulated by Benjamin Graham and David Dodd who began teaching it at Columbia Business School in 1928. In 1934 they published a book on this subject, Security Analysis, which is considered to be the bible of the value investor. The value investment methodology served very well many generations of stock market investors, but the most spectacular results of adhering to this straightforward and intuitive investment concept were achieved by Warren Buffett.

The value investing concept is fairly simple, but its implementation is far from it. This is where X-FIN.com with its sophisticated stock valuation model and up-to-date financial data of individual companies can help. By applying the same valuation algorithm, the model excludes any personal subjectivity and allows objective comparison of different stocks.

Please be aware, though, that the valuation result is only as good as the quality of the model's input data, especially the one related to expected future performance of the company. So, please make sure that the valuation model input parameters conform to your expectations of what that performance will be.
