I've been talking a lot about valuing stocks this month, let me share the resources I use. If you have other recommendations, please let me know!
Dividend Discount Calculator. This is a free tool that lets you input constant, 2 stage, 3 stage, or 4 stage dividend growth. Quite useful to a dividend investor such as myself!
Discounted Cash Flow Calculator. Another free tool to value stocks. I like this particular one because it offers two stages.
Morningstar.com Fair Value Estimate. I'm not exactly sure how this is calculated, but I do trust morningstar. I like this as a comparison. You can also find historical data and tons of other free information at this site. 5 year average P/E and yield are just a few clicks away.
Enjoy my mad paint skills:
F.A.S.T. Graphs. This is the best valuation tool I've ever used. Bar none. It does cost $10/month which is unfortunate because most of the bloggers on here are tightwads, myself included. I recommend doing the 14 day trial and cancelling before payment. Instead of maintaining a monthly subscription, I might just do quarterly reviews. If I do go this route, it will be after earnings season to make sure the data is current.
Do you have better resources? If so, please share!
