Valuation Matters



May 31, 2007 – Comments (7)

At first, I thought of using "throwingdarts" as my username, which would have reflected my type of picks for the first couple months.

My selection strategy now is largely based on current intrinsic value, with a margin of safety built in for either an outperform or underperform call.

As far as when to end a pick - I only end whenever my calculation is no longer correct in comparison to the S&P 500 benchmark.

So, how do you derive your intrinsic values?

There are several calculators out there that compute intrinsic value based on discounted cash flow.  Having tried a few, I finally came across one that I prefer - and it's a free online link.

If you're interested, email me for the URL.

My Caps alerts say you closed your position in INTC. I see why,but if I may, I have a comment. The one thing I never see talked about regarding INTC is that they have a wholly owned subsidiary called Wind River. As far as I can tell, Wind River develops software that allows for M2M communication. Would not this be a good thing for the coming IoT?  Just curious.

 I am still bullish on INTC.  In my case, I had closed my position just to reflect my own holdings in my portfolio.  I was writing covered calls against my shares of Intel (very profitably, I might add).  One ran away from me, and my shares were called, so I closed my CAPs position at that same time.

Disclosure:  No longer holds shares of INTC.

 Sorry I missed your post earlier.  I added you as a favorite.  You just have someone pull up your CAPS profile, then click the button at the top of the page to add as a favorite.
