Introduction to the FocusInvestor.com Discounted Cash Flow Excel Calcu One method an investor could use to determine the value of a company involves conducting a discounted cash flow analysis. An example of a series of assumptions an investor could use to calculate a companies intrinsic value under the Three-Stage DC 1: an initial cash flow of \$10,000 2: a discount rate of 15% (the user should insert his required return here) 3: cash flows grow at a 14% rate for the first 5 years, a 10% rate for the next 5 years, and a 5% rate for the final 5 year period 4: the investor uses a terminal growth rate of 3% 5: the company has 10,000 shares outstanding and pays no dividends.

Discounted cash flow (DCF) As the name implies, a companies future cash flows are discounted back to the present to derive w question. The DCF Model is certainly not a perfect valuation tool (as it is very difficult to predict what a company will grow it estimate of value that, when combined with all the other components of a users research on a company, can help give an idea o should also keep in mind that the Intrinsic Value that is produced is only as good as the numbers put into the model. If you as value) you will get an unrealistic intrinsic value result. The investor should think of the Intrinsic Value figure given in this lig lower, in order to achieve a given return (i.e. the discount rate) on your investment if your assumptions are correct.

Limitations of my excel DCF Models: You can only use 5 year time periods unless you modify the spreadsheet. I will continue Terminal Value: The PV of the all the companies future cash flows. Terminal Value Growth Rate: The rate that you expect the company to indefinitely grow its cash flows by.
