But they never look at the balance sheet. There is a fundamental stupidity about discounted-cash-flow valuations.
Depending on what you plug into the equation, you can get widely disparate multiples. You are combining very good information, your estimate of near-term cash flow, with very bad information, your estimate of distant cash flow. When you add bad information to good information, bad dominates. The second-most reliable piece of information is the profit-generating capacity of that business, normalized for accounting distortions and cyclical factors.
Forget the growth and the forecasting. Norton: Is there a third element? Greenwald: Yes. It has to do with the Warren Buffett instinct, the strategic assumptions. So Buffett tries to incorporate these judgments directly in his valuation.
Let me give you three examples. Asset value vastly exceeds earnings-power value.
The takeaway is that value is being destroyed by weak management. Does a discounted cash-flow calculation tell you that story? Not in a million years.
Case two: Asset value and earnings power are about equal, which is exactly what would happen in a competitive market. If you are not and you would have the evidence on your side , you have to choose a strategy that fits your personality and specifically whether you need instant gratification or not.
If you do, you should use a short-term strategy — either a technical momentum style or a short-term fundamental strategy. Momentum trumps value in the short term - even though you will have the trading costs working against you.
There are successful managers in the technical quant type of camp with Renaissance Technologies as a shining example.
The problem is that the short duration of the strategies they are using makes them have to reinvent themselves every 12 or 24 months. Very few firms have this capacity.
Most investors, and almost the entire sell side, are short term fundamentalists who try to forecast short term changes in corporate financials — typically estimates of EPS — and map this against consensus numbers. The issue here is that this is a strategy that depends on an information advantage and since everybody crowds into this space, that advantage of having information that no one else has is really, really hard to sustain.
This leaves us the longer term investing approaches such as so called growth investing or value investing where you aspire to buy securities that are priced lower by the market than you think they are fundamentally worth.
Value investing is simply looking for bargains in the financial markets. This is a strategy that in fact almost everybody claim they use. Certainly few claim to be buying securities for a higher price than they think they are worth.
Further, the evidence is quite clear that — while value investing works - investors overpay for stocks with the highest expected growth rates with underperformance as the result.
So in this longer-term area, value investing is the more rational choice. See full PDF below.
