The Valuation of Long-Term

Securities

The process of determining the current worth of an

asset or company.
There are many techniques that can be usedto
determinevalue,some are subjective and others are
objective.

For example, an analyst valuing a company may look at the

company's management, the composition of its capital structure,
prospectof future earnings, and market value of assets.
Judging the contributions of a company's management would be
more of a subjective valuation technique, while calculating
intrinsic value based on futureearnings would be an objective
technique.

Items that are usually valued are a financial asset or

liability. Valuations can be done on assets (for
example, investments in marketable securities such
as stocks, options, business enterprises, or intangible
assets such as patents and trademarks) or on
liabilities (e.g., bonds issued by a company).
Valuations are needed for many reasons such as
investment analysis, capital budgeting, merger and
acquisition transactions, financial reporting, taxable
events to determine the proper tax liability etc.

types of models:

Absolute value models that determine the present value of an

asset's expected future cash flows. These kinds of models take
two general forms: multi-period models such as discounted cash
flow models or single-period models such as the Gordon model.
These models rely on mathematics rather than price observation.
Relative value models determine value based on the observation of
market prices of similar assets.
Option pricing models are used for certain types of financial
assets (e.g., warrants, put options, call options, employee stock
options, investments with embedded options such as a callable
bond) and are a complex present value model. The most common
option pricing models are the BlackScholes-Merton models and
lattice models.

The

greater the uncertainty about an assets

future benefits, the higher the discount rate
investors will apply when discounting those
benefits to the present.

Valuation

A bond is a debt security, where money/capital is

borrowed and is to be paid back along with interest.

More specifically, bonds mature in more than 10 years, notes in less

than 10 years, and bills in less than one year. In this presentation
we will use the term bond to refer to all maturities.

All of the future payments to be made on the bond are fixed or

predetermined, as stated in the bond contract.

The current value of a bond is defined as the Present

Value of all the future cash flows to be received by the
bondholder.
A bond promises to pay a predetermined stream of future cash
flows.

Callable

bond: the issuer has right to retire the bond

before maturity, at a predetermined price that is
always specified in the bond contract.
Almost all corporate bonds are callable. If interest rates
then fall in the future, firms can retire these existing
bonds and replace them with new lower rate bonds.
Callable bonds will command a higher interest rate or yield
(lower price) than a comparable risk non-callable bond.

Mortgage

bond: bond is secured or collateralized by

some physical asset in case the issuer defaults.
Commonly used in the transportation industry.

Convertible bond: bond can be converted into a

predetermined number of shares of common stock.
Investors are willing to accept a lower yield on such
bonds. The right to convert may become very
valuable.
A convertible bond thus has the opportunity to become an
exciting investment if the firm does unexpectedly well.

Debenture bond: bond is backed by the issuers

ability to generate future cash flow to make the
promised payments. There is no collateral.

Sinking fund provision: issuer may be required to

retire a certain amount of an issue each year. For
example, having to retire 10% of a 20 year bond issue
each year from year 11 to year 20.
Bond contract (indenture): a legal contract between
the issuer and bondholders that specifies all of the
terms and conditions of the bond issue.

A perpetual bond is a bond that never matures. It

has an infinite life.

The yield to maturity is the average annual rate of return that a

bondholder will earn under the following assumptions:
The bond is held to maturity
The interest payments are reinvested at the YTM
The rate of return a bond investor actually earns depends on
the bond price paid.
Note that bonds usually sell at market prices quite different
from their face value, so investors can earn actual rates of
return quite different from the bonds coupon rate.
The yield to maturity is the same as the bonds internal rate of
return (IRR)

Steps to calculate the rate of return

(or yield).
1. Determine the expected cash flows.

Discount Bond -- The market required rate of return

exceeds the coupon rate (Par > P0 ).
Premium Bond -- The coupon rate exceeds the market
required rate of return (P0 > Par).
Par Bond -- The coupon rate equals the market required
rate of return (P0 = Par).

Preferred Stock is a type of stock that promises a (usually) fixed

dividend, but at the discretion of the board of directors.

The preferred dividend rate is expressed as a percentage of the par

Common stock represents the ownership of a corporation.

The holders of debt or bonds have a senior claim on the firm.
Stockholders have a residual claim, what remains after other
obligations met, including any new asset investment in the firm.
Stocks are risky investments; however, we seek to understand
the basics of stock valuation and how to price the risk.
Current stock prices reflect todays expectations of future
cash flow performance of firms and the risk of these cash
flows.
Expectations concerning future performance can never be
proven in the present.
Firms pay out excess (residual) cash to shareholders primarily
as: (1) cash dividends and (2) share repurchases.

The primary focus here is placed on Intrinsic Value.

Intrinsic Value is the Present Value of all future
forecasted cash flows.
We define Free Cash Flow to Equity (FCFE) as the firms
excess cash flow that can be paid out through both dividends
and stock repurchases.
We calculate the PV of all future forecasted FCFE at a
discount rate or cost of equity capital Ke that is (assumed to
be) estimated using the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)
which will be covered in next classes.

Basic dividend valuation model accounts for the PV

of all future dividends.

The dividend valuation model requires the

forecast of all future dividends. The
following dividend growth rate assumptions
simplify the valuation process.
Constant Growth
No Growth
Growth Phases

The term constant growth indicates that a firm is

mature and is expected to grow at an assumed
constant rate g throughout the future.

The term growth rate typically refers to the growth of the

firms cash dividends; however, everything associated with the
firm is also assumed to grow at the same rate g.

If a firm is expected to have a variable rate of

growth in the coming years, then constant growth
valuation is not appropriate. However, we will always
assume that constant growth does begin somewhere
out in the future.

The constant growth model assumes that

dividends will grow forever at the rate g.

Now we need to find the present

We determine the PV of cash flows.

PV(D1) = D1(PVIF15%, 1) = \$3.76 (.870) = \$3.27
PV(D2) = D2(PVIF15%, 2) = \$4.36 (.756) = \$3.30
PV(D3) = D3(PVIF15%, 3) = \$5.06 (.658) = \$3.33
P3 = \$5.46 / (.15 - .08) = \$78 [CG Model]
PV(P3) = P3(PVIF15%, 3) = \$78 (.658) = \$51.32

Finally, we calculate the intrinsic value by

summing all of cash flow present values.

Key issues:
What is the difference between a real return and a
nominal return?
How can we convert from one to the other?

Example:

Suppose we have \$1000, and Diet Coke costs \$2.00 per

six pack. We can buy 500 six packs. Now suppose the
rate of inflation is 5%, so that the price rises to \$2.10
in one year. We invest the \$1000 and it grows to \$1100
in one year. Whats our return in dollars? In six packs?

A. Dollars. Our return is

(\$1,100 - \$1,000)/\$1,000 = \$100/\$1,000 = .10.

The percentage increase of our return is 10%.

B. Six packs. We can buy \$1,100/\$2.10 = 523.81 six
packs, so our return is

Your nominal return is the percentage

change in the amount of money you have.
Your real return is the percentage change
in the amount of stuff you can actually buy.

The relationship between real and nominal returns is

described by the Fisher Effect. Let:
R =
the nominal return
r
=
the real return
h =
the inflation rate
According to the Fisher Effect:
1 + R = (1 + r) x (1 + h)
From the example, the real return is 4.76%; the
nominal return is 10%, and the inflation rate is 5%:
(1 + R) = 1.10
(1 + r) x (1 + h) = 1.0476 x 1.05 = 1.10
