Group Company Valuation Assignment and Individual Presentation

You are required to analyse a listed company and prepare an investment recommendation report.

The report provides an assessment of the company’s current position and future prospects, incorporating the use of various valuation techniques to arrive at estimates of the intrinsic value of the company’s shares.

Your report should make a case for the company’s shares to be rated in one of the following ways (Recommendation):

Sell

Hold

Buy

The shares should be sold, as a materially negative return is expected in the next 6 to 12 months.

The shares will have neither a materially positive return nor a materially negative return in the next 6 to 12 months.

The shares should be bought, as a materially positive return is expected in the next 6 to 12 months.

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 5

Part I

The final submission should fulfil the following minimum requirements:

1. Introduction & Background

Company

Provide an overview of the company’s history, operations and any structural changes it has undergone since it began. This is to understand how the company got to where it is today and what may occur in the future.

Industry

Analyse the structure of the industry in which the firm operates and whether it is domestic-focussed or has a global nature. Identify the industry’s major companies and where they operate.

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 6

Part I

2. Historical Financial Performance (Topic 6)

Evaluate the relative historical financial performance of the company among its 2 major competitors/peers

• Identify the firm’s 2 major competitors and discuss why they have been selected

• Identify, and explain the relevance of, 5 financial ratios of your choice (not to include ROE, Net Profit Margin, Total Asset Turnover or Financial Leverage) for the company and its peers

• Explain the performance of the company compared to its 2 major competitors/peers using this analysis

➔Analyse and explain the reasons for changes in these ratios over the past five years

➔ Do not simply describe the changes in the ratios

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 7

Part I 3. Historical Dupont ROE (Topic 6)

Estimate the ROE of the company and its 2 major competitors for most recent 5 years using the DuPont ROE approach.

• DuPont Analysis should be done using the 3-step procedure:

3 steps: Net Profit Margin, Total Asset Turnover and Financial Leverage

• Analyse the company’s and your selected peer companies’ ROEs over the period

• Show your own calculations for each component over the previous 5 years for the company and its 2 selected competitors

• compare the DuPont ROE of the company with its 2 peer group companies

➔analyse and comment on the reasons for the change in ROE for the firm and its competitors with reference to the change in the 3 components over 5 years

➔relevant charts/graphs may be used to illustrate these figures

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 8

Part I

4. Company & Industry Analysis and Potential Impact on Future

Earnings (Topic 5)

Analyse the company’s/industry’s current issues and explain

the effect of these issues on the company’s future earnings

a) At the Microeconomic Level:

The company – and industry-specific factors (operation, financials, objectives, competition, etc.)

➔ Use SWOT Analysis

b) At the Macroeconomic Level:

General factors that apply for the industry (GDP, employment, growth of the industry, regulation, global factors, supply, demand, world commodity prices, etc.)

➔ Use Porter’s 5 Forces Analysis

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 9

Part II

1. Estimation of Expected Return, E(ri), using CAPM (Topic 4)

➔ The estimated CAPM required return should be used as the discount rate in your valuation models

E(ri) = Rf + βi [E(Rm)–Rf]

Expected = return on a security

Risk- + free Rate

Beta of x Market risk

the premium security

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 10

Part II

(i). An Estimate of the company’s Beta, βi.

Use the daily closing price data of the company and the market index to calculate daily holding period yields for the most recent 5 years. Using this data, you can estimate raw beta by using regression analysis in Excel. Attach details of your work as an Appendix.

➔ Adjust the Raw Beta using the formula: Adjusted Beta = [(0.67) x Raw Beta] + 0.33

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 11

Part II (ii). The Risk-Free Rate of Return

Use the 10-year Singapore Government bond yield as a proxy for the RFR.

(iii). The Market Return

Please use an estimate of the market return, E(Rm)

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 12

Part II

2. Intrinsic Value Estimation: Using Discounted Cash Flow Models

(i) Dividend Discount Model (Topic 8 Part I)

Estimate the intrinsic value of the company’s shares using the

dividend discount model (DDM)

• You must use a 3 Stage DDM. Follow the methodology discussed in Equity Valuation slides

• Justify the number of years used for each of your growth periods

• Determine the growth rate for Period 1 using the Retention Ratio

and ROE formula (g = RR x ROE)

• Estimate the growth rate for Period 2 using your discussion in the

company’s/industry current issues section (Part I, no. 4)

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 13

Part II

• Estimate the terminal (Period 3) growth rate using a proxy that represents the long-term growth rate and calculate the terminal value

• Calculate the present value of each future dividend and the terminal value, then add them to calculate the intrinsic value of the company

➔ Provide justification and reasoning if you use a different growth rate than the one calculated for Period 1

➔Provide justification and reasoning for your growth rate assumptions for growth in Period 2 and Period 3

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 14

Part II

(ii). FreeCashFlowtoEquity(FCFE)Model(Topic8PartII)

Estimate the intrinsic value of the company’s shares using the Free Cash Flow to Equity (FCFE) model

• You must use a 3 stage FCFE model to calculate the intrinsic value of the stock

• Source the components for FCFE from the company’s financial statements using Eikon

• Calculate the FCFE per share over the past 5 years. The average growth in FCFE per share will be the growth rate for Period 1

Formula FCFE = Net Income + (Depreciation Expense – Capital Expenditures) – Δ in Working Capital – Principal Debt Repayments + New Debt Issues OR FCFE = Cash from Operating Activities – Capital Expenditures + Net Debt Issued (Repaid)

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 15

Part II

• Estimate the growth of FCFE for Period 2 using your macro and micro analysis (Part I, no. 4)

• Estimate the terminal (Period 3) growth rate using a proxy that represents the long-term growth rate and calculate the terminal value

• Calculate the present value of each future year’s FCFE to calculate present value, then add them to calculate the intrinsic value of the company

➔Provide justification and reasoning if you use a different growth rate than the one calculated for Period 1

➔Provide justification and reasoning for your growth rate assumptions for growth in Period 2 and Period 3

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 16

Part II

3. Intrinsic Value Estimation: Using Relative Valuation

Techniques (Topic 8 Part II)

(i). INTRINSIC or JUSTIFIED Price-to-Book Ratio (P/B)

(ii). INTRINSICorJUSTIFIEDPrice-to-EarningsRatio(P/E)

• Calculate and compare the Intrinsic or Justified Price-to-Book

and Price-to-Earnings ratio for the company

• Determine the relative valuation of the firm using these

multiples (Do not attempt to calculate the share price) ➔Analyse and comment on the relative valuation of the firm in

comparison to what is being traded in the market.

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 17

Part II

4. Technical Analysis

(i) Share Price Performance

Using relevant charts, evaluate the company’s share price performance over the last 5 years

• Compare the relative performance of the company to the broad market index

• Compare the relative performance of the company to its 2 peers ➔Comment on these charts, referencing reasons for any

significant changes you have identified

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 18

Part II

(ii). Moving Average and Volume Analysis

Use 50-day vs 200-day moving average lines and volume analysis to identify Buy/Sell/Hold signals

➔ Show, and comment on, these analysis with reference to charts sourced from Eikon

➔ Use volume analysis to confirm your price signals

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 19

Part III Conclusion and Recommendation

Evaluation of Findings and Recommendations

• Why do the intrinsic values you have calculated differ from the

current/recent share price?

• How does this difference inform your investment recommendation?

• What is your investment decision based on your evaluation?

➔ Is your recommendation to Buy, Sell or Hold shares in this company?

• Is it different from the signal obtained from the technical analysis? Why?

• Does your qualitative analysis agree with your quantitative analysis? If not, why not?

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 20

Important Points to be Covered Regarding Valuation Models:

• Explain any assumptions you have made in implementing your models.

• Where appropriate, explain how you arrived at the variables you are using. For example, it is not enough to say you are assuming a 2% growth rate. You will be expected to provide justification for your 2% growth rate.

• It’s not enough to simply describe the financial ratios. You must find reasons why they are changing, especially if there are significant changes year-to-year. This will require in-depth research.

• You must use Refinitiv Eikon Online and IBISWorld as major data sources. These can be supplemented with data from the companies’ annual reports and other sources you have found.

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 21

Presentation of Report

The report is to be presented in the form of a stock analyst’s investment report. It should have an Executive Summary, outlining the main findings, at the beginning. The remainder can be structured in line with the above points. Attach details of your working and calculations, and any other relevant information, as an Appendix. DO NOT send a separate Excel file. Don’t include all the data for the beta calculation, just the regression statistics from Excel.

• Illustrate your arguments with relevant charts and diagrams.

• Relate all the information in your analysis to your investment recommendation.

• Build a case for your recommendation by using your findings from each of the points above.

• Your report should look professional.

• DO NOT attach information you have used in compiling the report (annual reports, newspaper articles, etc.) to the report.

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 22

Executive Summary

• An executive summary is often written for leaders in a business or organisation, such as CEOs, department heads, or supervisors, so they can get critical information quickly to decide a course of action.

• An executive summary should summarise the key points of the report.

• It should restate the purpose of the report, highlight the major points of the report, and describe any results, conclusions, or recommendations from the report.

• It should include enough information so the reader can understand what is discussed in the full report, without having to read it. Do not state your methodology in the Executive Summary.

RMIT University BAFI1045 Investment 23

References and Citations

Use proper citations and references and include a list of references you use in your report. Failure to do so will result in a lower grade. RMIT provides a web site which explains the use of the Harvard reference system. Please consult it here:
