Inall cases financial statements mustbeanalyzed tomakea sound decision.In market economies, mostfirms areorganized to make money (or"create value") fortheirowners. Sofinancial statements areprepared primarily with shareholders' investmentinmind: Thestatements areformally presented toshareholders at annual meetings andthemainnumbers theyreport are earnings (for the owners) in the income statement and thebookvalue of owners' equity in the balance sheet But much of the financial statementanalysis for investors is relevant to otherparties. Theshareholder is concerned withprof-itability. Butgovernmental regulators, suppliers, thefirms' competitors, andemployees areconcerned with profitability also. Shareholders and bondholders are concerned withtheriskiness of the business, but so are suppliers and employees. Andsecurities litigation,which involves expert witnesses, usually dealswithcompensation for lossof profits-orlossof value-to investors. Thus muchof the financial statement analysis in this bookisrelevant totheseusersaswell.Investors typically invest ina fum bybuying equity shares or thefirm's debt. Theirpri-maryconcern is theamount topay-the value of theshares or thedebt. Theanalysis of in-formation that focuses onvaluation is calledvaluationanalysis, fundamental analysis,or,when securities likestocks andbonds areinvolved, securityanalysis. Thisbookdevel-ops theprinciples of fundamental analysis. Andit shows howfinancial statement analysisis usedin fundamental analysis.In thischapter weset thestage.Millions of shares of business firms aretraded every dayontheworld's stockmarkets. Theinvestors whobuyandsell theseshares askthemselves: Am I trading at the rightprice?Whataretheshares really worth? Theyattempt toanswer these questions while adiscordantbackground chorus-the printed press, "talking heads" on television financialnetworks,andInternet cbatrooms-c-voices opinions about whatthepriceshould be.Theyturnto in-vestment advisers who provide an almost endless streamof information andrecommenda-tionsto sort out.Theyhearclaims thatsomeshares areoverpriced, some underpriced, andtheyhear theories that stockmarkets can be caught up in the fadsand fashions-evenmania-that aresaidtodrive sharepricesaway fromtheirappropriate values.Intheabsence of anyclearindication of whatstocksareworth, investors copeindiffer-ent ways. Some-intuitiveinvestors-rely on their owninstincts. They go on hunches.Some-ccalled passive investors-throw up their hands and trust in "market efficiency."Theyassume thatthemarket priceis a fairpricefor therisktaken, thatmarket forces havedriven thepricetotheappropriate pointThese investment styles aresimple anddon't require mucheffort. Butbothtypes of in-vestors run risksbeyond thoseinherent inthe firms they buy:Paying toomuch or sellingfor toolittle damages investment returns. Theintuitive investor hastheproblem of the in-tuitive bridge builder: Onemaybe pleased withone'sintuition but, before building getsunderway, it might paytocheckthat intuition against thecalculations prescribed bymod-em engineering. Not doing so might leadto disaster. Thepassive investor is in danger ifstocks aremispriced. It is tempting totrust, as amatter of faith, thatthemarket isefficient,andmuch economic theory saysit should be. But it is goodpractice to check. Bothtypesof investors runtheriskof trading withsomeone who has"donehishomework," someonewhohasanalyzed theinformation thoroughly.Chapter 1 Introduction!O Inue.Hing andVallUltion 3INVESTMENT STYLES ANDFUNDAMENTAL ANALYSISHowarebusiness analysisandfinancialstatementanalysisconnected?What is theroleof theprofessionalanalyst?ction to Valuationtheprimary information that firms publish aboutthemselves, and __,_,,_ Net income available to commonMost of these subtotalsappear on De11S income statement.

Abnormal earnings growth eachyearis cum-dividend earn-ingslessnormal earnings. Calculations aredescribed at thebottomof theexhibit usingboththeequation 6.3and6.3amethods. You see thatAEG is growing at 3 percent afterYear 1.So,theAEGforYear 2 canbe capitalized withthisgrowth rate:E I [ 6 0.071] .Vo:::: - 12.3 + :::: 133.71 million0.10 1.10-1.03(Allow for rounding errors.) Thisis a simple valuation model where growth at a constantratebegins after the forward year. The forward PIE ratiois 133.71/12.36"" 10.82, higherthan the normal PIE of 10. Youwill notice at the bottom of the exhibit that the cum-dividend earnings growth rate is 10.57 percent, higherthanthe required returnof 10 per-cent,andaccordingly thePIE ratiois greaterthan thenormal PIE. You alsowillnoticethatthecum-dividend earnings growth rateis considerably higher thanthe 3 percent ratefore-castedfor (ex-dividend) eamings.' Andyou will notice that the REmodel andtheAEOmodel give us thesamevaluation.Anchoring Valuationon Current EarningsThe valuation in this example pricesforward earnings so, strictly speaking, it anchors onforecasted earnings ratherthanthecurrentearnings in thefinancial statements. Thevaluecanalsobe calculated byanchoring oncurrent(trailing) earnings: Capitalize currentearn-ings, and then add the valueof forecasted AEG from Year1onward. That is, shift theapplication of themodel oneperiod backin time.So,for theexample inExhibit 6.2,E UO[ 0.069 ]Vo +do =133.71+ 9.09 =- 12.00+ =142.80million0.10 UO- 1.03Thevalue obtained is thecum-dividend value(price plusdividend) appropriate forvaluingcurrent earnings. Thetrailing PIE is$142.80/$12.00 "" 11.90, higherthanthe normal trail-ingPIE of II(for a required returnof 10percent). The$12.00 hereis earnings forYear 0andthe$0.069 is forecastedAEO forYear I, whichis expected togrowat a 3percent rate.Thecapitalization rateis 1.10/0.10, the normaltrailing PIE, ratherthan 1/0.10, thenormalforward PIE. Theformal model forthecalculation isE PE [ AEG, AEG, AEG, ]Vo+do=,,--Earn,+--+--+--+...PE-l PE p} piClearly, withnoABO afterthecurrent year, thetrailing PIE is normaLAnchoring valuation on current earningsanchorson actual earnings in the financialstatements ratherthana forecast of earnings. However, thereis a goodreason toapply themodel to forward earnings ratherthancurrentearnings. As wewilJsee when we come toanalyze financial statements, currentearnings oftencontain nonsustainable components-unusual events and one-timecharges, for example-that do not bear on the future. Byfocusing on forward earnings and using current earnings as a base for the forecast, we2Strictly. cum-dividend earnings foranyyearaheadareearnings forthat year plus earnings from alldividends paid andreinvested fromYear 1upto that year. So, forYear 3, cum-dividend earnings arethe $13.11EP5 forthat year, plus theYear Zdividend invested foroneyear, plus the earnings from thereinvested Year 1dividend. However, asdividends earnat the required return andearnings at therequired return aresubtracted inthe AEG calculation, it makes nodifference to thevaluation-andiscertainly simpler-ifwe justinclude the earnings on the prior year's dividends incum-dividend earnings.204 Part One Financial SEa!emems and ValuationAnchor on What You Know and Avoid Speculation 6.2Converting Analysts'Forecasts toa ValuationIn Chapter 5 we converted analysts' forecasts for Nike toa valuation usingresidual earn-ings methods. Herewedo the samefor Google, Inc., the supplier of Web-based software,A Case 2 valuationis demonstrated usingDell, lnc., with a required rate of return ofII percent. TheEPSandDPSup to2005are thesameas thoseinChapter 5 where weval-uedthe firmusingresidual earnings methods with a continuing valuebasedon a forecastthat residual earnings after2005 would growat 6.5percent. The EPSfor2006here is thatwhich would result from this growth rate. Dellpays nodividends, so cum-dividend earn-ingsarethe sameas earnings.Case2 differs fromCase1because AEGis expected tocontinue togrowafterthefore-cast horizon, so the valuation adds a continuing valuethat incorporates thisgrowth. Withthe forecasted AEGfor 2006expected togrowat a rateof 6.5percent after 2006, thecon-tinuing valueforDellat theendof2005 is0.873pershare.Adding thepresent value of thiscontinuing valueat theend of 200I to thetotalpresent valueof AEG upto theendof2005($-0.062) andthe forward earnings for 2001(50.84) yields $1354 of earnings to becapi-talized, resulting in a valueofS123 I per share.Thisis thesamevaluecalculated withresidual earnings methods inChapter 5.Andit isalso the sameas the valueusingforecasted changes in residual earnings in equation 6.1.Indeed, youcansee that theAEGfor Dell herealways equals thechange in residual earn-ingsgiven above in equation 6.1.As bothareanchored on forward earnings, thetwo valu-ationsmust bethesame.Go to Box 6.3for a formal demonstration that t.RE:::: AEG.effectively focuson the sustainable portionof currentearnings that cangrow. Indeed, thefinancial statement analysis of PartTwo of the bookaims to identifysustainable earningsthat area soundanchorfor forecasting forward earnings.The Webpage for this chapterprovides a spreadsheet to help you develop abnormalearnings growth pro formas.APPLYING THE MODEL TOEQUITIESTheexample inExhibit 6.2issimilartoour prototype savings account example, exceptthatthis firm has someabnormal earnings growthwhereas the savings account had none.Thefirmis simplebecause AEGis forecasted to growat a constantrateimmediately after thefirst yearahead. Model6.2requires infinite forecasting horizons, so, to valueequities, weneedcontinuing values to truncate the forecast horizon. Inthesimpleexample, this occursjust oneyearahead.Thereare twotypesof continuing valuecalculations. Case I applieswhenoneexpectssubsequent abnormal earnings growth at the forecast horizon to be zero. Case 2 applieswhenoneexpects moreabnormal earnings growth afterthe forecast horizon.CaseI is illustrated usingGeneral Electric Company witha required returnofl0 percent.TheEPSandDPSnumbers inCase1areGE'sactual numbers for2000-2004, thesamenum-hersusedtovalueGEusingresidual earnings methods inthelastchapter. Asin thelastchap-ter,wetreatthenumbers asforecasts andvalueGE'sshares at theendof1999.Recall thatweattempted tovalueGEusingdiscounted cashflow techniques inChapter 4 but ranintodiffi-culties. However, wefound wecouldvalueit withresidual earnings methods. TheAEGval-uation hereproduces thesame$13.07 persharevalueastheREvaluation inChapter 5.TheCase 1valuation is basedona forecast thatAEGwill bezeroafter2004.Whiletheanalyst forecasts positive AEGfor2004, henotesthattheaverage AEGisclosetozeroover2001-2004andsoforecasts zeroAEGsubsequently.

This isparticularly important when valuinggrowth, for growth isspeculative.!n Chapter 4, we pointed out that discountedcashflow(DCF) analysis often putsa lotofthevalue into thecontinuingvalue.Thisis problematic forthecontinuing value isthemostuncertain part of a valuation, dealing asit does with thelongterm. For General Electric(GE) inChapter 4, more than 100percent ofthevaluation isinthecontinuing value. We wouldmuch prefer a valuation method where thevalue comes fromthepresent ("what weknow") or thenear-term future (whatweknow with some confidence): We suggested thatearningsmight supply some level of comfort.Indeed, for General Electric inCase 1,thecontinuing valueat the forecast horizon, 2004, iszero, comparedwithmorethan100percent inthe OCF valuation. We valuedGEwithfive years of forecasts. Wemay have some uncertainty aboutthese forecasts-and would prefer a valuation based ononeor twoyears offorecasted earnings-but probably feelmorecomfortable with this valuation thanone that speculatesabout a large continuing value.The difference betweenDCF valuation andthe valuationhereis, of course, the accounting: Cashaccountingversusaccrual accounting. Accrual accounting brings the futureforward intime, leaving less valuein a continuing value.Theresidualearnings valuation for GE inChapter 5 alsoused accrual accounting, buttheCase 2 valuation there hasa nonzero continuing value(in equation 5.5). Is it then thecasethat AEGvaluationgivesus a moresecurevaluationthan an RE valuation? It does look like it, but infact no.Theresidualearnings valuationgives the same valuation as theAEGvaluationfor the sameforecast horizon. Forecastingthat RE will bea constant at theforecast horizon ina Case 2residual earnings valuationis the same as forecasting thatAEG =0, for it isalways thecase that AEG =change inRE.By forecasting that REwill be positive but constant. wearejustforecasting that there will bevalue missing from thebal-ance sheet. But therewill benoadded value for qrowth. SeeBox 6.3.If expectedAEG=0, then the PIE is normal, asdemon-strated with thesavings account. Soforecasting that GEwillhave zero AEG in2005 isequivalent toforecasting thatitsPIEwill benormal. (By 2008,GE'sPIE was approximately normal.See Exercise E6.1 0.)Proceed nowto thevaluation ofDell, Inc. You will seethatthereis now a continuing value containing a qrowth specula-tion. Inthis case, wedonot escape some speculation aboutthelong run. But weseparate thatspeculation (in thecontin-uing value) from what wearemore confident about (in near-term forecasts).205206 Part One Fi'nancial Statemel1ts and Valll(ldonCASE2Dell, Inc.Inthiscase, abnormalearnings areexpectedtogrow at a 6.5per-ccnt rateafter 2005.Required rateofreturnis 11 percent.2000DPSEPSDPS reinvested (0.11 x DPSH)Cum-dividend earningsNormal earnings (1.11xEPSt_1)Abnormal earnings growthDiscount rate (1.11 'lPresent value of AEGTotal PV of AEGContinuing value (CV)PVof CVTotal earnings to becapitalizedCapitalization rate(1.354)Value pershare --0.11The continuing value calculation:CV 0.0393 0.8731.11-1.065Present value ofCV =0.873= 0.5761.5181Note:Allow forrounding emns.20010.00.840.84-0.0620.5761.3540.11..Forecast Year TABLE 6.12002 2004 2005 2006ConvertingAnalysts'2003Forecasts toa0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 Valuation: Google,0.48 0.82 1.03 1.18 1.35 10c0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 Analysts forecast EPS0.48 0.82 1.03 1.18 1.349 two years ahead0.932 0.533 0.910 1.143 1.310 (S19.61 for2008 and-0.452 0.287 0.120 0.037 0.039 $24.01 for2009) and1.110 1.232 1.368 1.518 also give a five-year-0.408 0.233 0.088 0.025 EPS growth rate of28percent.

Compare it to similarsummaries for the dividend discount model (in Chapter 4),the discountedcash flowmodel (in Chapter4),and the residual earningsmodel (inChapter5).We haveemphasized that AEGvaluation, likethe residual earnings valuation, protectsus frompaying toomuch for earnings growth. Inthis sectionwewill discuss someotherfeatures of themodel.Buy EarningsTheabnormal earnings growth modeladopts theperspective of "buying earnings." It em-bodiesthe ideathat thevalueof a fumis basedon whatit canearn. As earnings representvalue to be addedfromsellingproducts and services in markets, the modelanticipatesthe valueto be addedfromtrading with customers, after matching revenuesfromthosecustomers withthevalues given up, in expenses, togenerate therevenue.TheAEGmodel embraces the language of the analyst community. PIEratiosaremoreoftenreferredto thanPro ratios. Analysts talkofearnings andearning growth, not residualearnings andresidual earnings growth. So, converting ananalyst's forecast toa valuation ismoredirect with this model thanwiththe residual earnings model. (Thelanguage of the(Wall) street does not recognizehowdividends affect growth, however; analysts talk ofex-dividend earnings growth rates, not cum-dividend rates.)Abnormal Earnings Growth Valuationand Residual Earnings ValuationOnthe otherhand,theAEGmodel does not giveas muchinsightintothe valuecreationas the residual earnings model. Firms investin assetsand addvaluebyemploying theseassets in operations. The residual earnings(RE) mode! explicitly recognizes the invest-ment in assets, then recognizes that valueis addedonlyif that return is greater that therequired return.The residual earningsmodel is a better lens on the business of generat-ing value, the cycle of investment and return on investment. Accordingly, we have notproposed theAEGmodel as a modelforstrategy analysis(as wedidwiththe REmodel),for strategy analysis involves investment. The central questionin strategyanalysisiswhether the investmentwill add value. Whenwe come to analysisin Part Twoof thebook, wewill focus on the REmodel, for it provides more insightintovaluegenerationwithin a business.AccountingMethods andValuationThe residual earnings model accommodates different accounting principles. As wesawinChapter 5, thisis because bookvalues andearnings work together. Firms may create higherfutureearnings by the accountingthey choose, but to do so theymust writedown bookAbnormal Earnings Growth Is Not Affected by Dividends,ShareIssues, or ShareRepurchasesWe sawin Chapter 5 that residual earnings valuation is not sensitive toexpected dividendpayout or shareissuesand sharerepurchases. This is also the case withthe AEGmodel.With respect to dividends, you canprove this to yourselfusing the simpleexample inExhibit 6.2. Rather thanpaying a dividend, reinvest thedividends inthe firm at the 10per-centrate. Subsequent earnings within thefirmwill increase bytheamount ofthe reinvesteddividends. Cum-dividend earnings-the amount of earnings earnedin the firmplus thatearnedby reinvesting the dividends outsidethe firm-willbe exactly the sameas if theshareholder reinvested thedividends ina personal account (asintheexhibit). AEG will notchange, norwill thevaluation. (You alsosawthis with thesavings account)Thissimulatesthe earnings for an investor whoreceives the dividend but usesthe cashto buythestock,whichis priced to yielda 10percent required return. He effectively undoes the dividend,withnoeffect on value. Thesamelogic appliesif thepayouts in Exhibit 6.2are from stockrepurchases ratherthandividends.Requires anunderstanding of how accrual accounting works.Requires an appreciationof the conceptof cum-dividendearnings and abnormal earningsgrowth.As thevaluederives completely fromforecasts that arecapitalized at the requiredreturn. thevaluationis sensitive to the estimate used for the requiredreturn. Residual earnings valuationsderive partly from book value thatdoes notinvolve a required return.Theresidualearningsmodel provides better insight into the analysis of value creation andthedrivers of growth (in Part Two ofthebook).Does not give an insightinto the drivers of earningsgrowth. particularly balance sheetitems;therefore, it is notsuited tostrategy analysis.Relies onearnings numbers thatcart besuspect.

Corre-spondingly, forecasting cum-dividend earnings growth abovenormal isthesame asforecasting growth inresidual earnings.Accordingly, oneset of forecasts gives usboth valuations, asthe Case2 valuationfor Dell and the equivalentvaluationbasedon changesin residual earningsat the front of thischapter demonstrate.The rearrangement oftheinputs leads to thedifferent an-chors anddifferent definitions ofadding value totheanchors.Yet the underlyingconcepts are similar. AEGvaluationen-forces the point that a firm cannot addvalue fromgrowingearningsunless it growsearnings at a rategreater than therequired rate of return. Only then does itincrease itsPIE ratio.But thatisthesame assaying thatthefirm must grow residualearnings to increase itsPIBratio. Thatis. added value comesfrominvestingto earnareturngreaterthanthe requiredreturn, and that addedvaluehas its manifestationin bothgrowth inresidual earnings andgrowth incum-dividend earn-ings over a normal growth rate.In onesense, theAEG valuation ismore convenient for onedoes not have to worry about book values. However, the REmodel gives usmore insight into thevalue creation (that pro-duces growth) sois more useful when wecome toanalysis inPart Two ofthebook.2 3 4Residual earnings 2.360 2.431 2.504 2.579 2.656Change inresidualearnings 0.071 0.073 0.075 0.077Abnormal earningsgrowth 0.071 0.073 0.075 0.077AEGt "" Earnl- Earnl_1 1)(81_1 '"[Esm, -(Pc -1)8H ] - [EarnC_1 -(Pc -1)8c_2]'"REr- REt_1So, abnormal earnings growth isalways equal to thechangein residual earnings. You canseethis by comparing thechanges inresidualearnings with theAEGfor the prototypefirm inExhibit 6.2:The AEG model andtheRE model look different butarereallyquite similar. Both require forecasts ofearnings and dividends,although theRE model adds theextra mechanical stepofcal-culating book value forecasts from these forecasts.Structurally, thetwomodels aresimilar. TheRE starts withbookvalue as an anchor and thenaddsvaluebychargingforecastedearnings by the requiredreturnapplied to bookvalue. The AEGmodel starts with capitalized earnings as ananchorand thenaddsvaluebychargingforecasted(cum-dividend) earnings bythe required return appliedtopriorearnings, rather than book value.This structural difference isjust a different arrangement ofthe inputs. Alittle algebraunderscores the point. Abnormalearnings growth can bewritten ina different form:AEGr"" IEarn( +(PE -l)dl_d -PEEarnl_1"" Earnr- Earnr_1 -(Pf-1){Earnt_1 -dl_l)Using the stocks andflows equationforaccountingfor thebook value of equity (Chapter2), 81_1"" 81_2 +- soEarnt_l -dl_1 ""8:_18r_2. Tnus,208209values. Whenthe higherearnings are combined withthe lower bookvalues (ina residualearnings valuation), valueis unaffected.TheAEGmodel, at first glance, looksas ifit mightnot havethisfeature. Amanager cancreate higher futureearnings by writing downbook values, and the AEGmodel valuesfuture earnings without carrying bookvalues as a correcting mechanism. We do not wantto payfor growth that does not add value, and accounting methods can creategrowth inearnings that we do not want to payfor. As it happens, the AEGmodel, likethe residualearnings model, provides protection against paying for growth that is createdby account-ing. Box6.5explains.(6.5)Exhibit 6.2presented pro forma earnings andearningsgrowthforvaluing the equity of a prototypefirm. Supposethemanager of this firm hasdecided tocreate more earningsfor Year 1 bywritingdowninventory by$8 in Year O. Thisaccounting adjustment changes theaccounting numbers, butit should not affect thevalue.

Correspondingly, Year 1 forward earnings increase by$8 to$20.36because cost ofgoods soldis lower by$8. Cum-dividendearningsfor Year 2 are not affectedbut, becausethoseearningsare nowcomparedtonormal earningsof$22.396, on the highbase of $20.36 for Year 1, abnormalearnings growth fer Year 2 is(adecline of) -$8.729. Subse-quent years areunaffected.

WhileforwardYear 1 earningshaveincreased, thehigher earnings of $20.36 meanhighernormalearnings forYear 2 andconsequently lower earnings growth of -$8.729.The neteffectis to leave thevalue unchanged.EFFECT ONPIE RATIOSWhilevaluationsare not affectedbyaccountingmethods,PIEratios certainly are. The forward PIEfor this firm isnow$133.71/$20.36'" 6.57, down from 10.82. The trailing(dividend-adjusted) PIEis now($133.71 + $9.09}/$4.00=35.70, upfrom11.90. Shifting income from current earningsto forwardearningsincreases the trailingPIE;there is nowmore anticipated earnings growth next year andthePIE pricesgrowth. However, shifting income tothefuture decreases theforwardPIE-there isnow lessanticipatedgrowthafter theforward year, andthevalue oftheearnings (inthenumerator)does notchange.A LESSONFOR THE ANALYSTThere is alesson here. The diligent analyst distinguishesgrowth .that comes from accounting from growth'thatcomesfromreal businessfactors. If growthis inducedbythe ac-counting, hechanges the PIEratio, but hedoes not changethevaluation. Applying theAEG model (orindeed theresidualearningsmodel) protectshimfrommakingthe mistake ofpricing earnings thatareduetoaccounting methods.Weopened this chapter with the caveat that wedo notwant topayfor growththat doesnot add value. We donotwant to pay for earnings growth from added investmentthat earns only therequiredreturn. But wealso donotwantto pay for growth thatis createdbyaccountingmethods.Using the residual earnings model or theabnormal earningsgrowth model protects usfromboth dangers.Chapter 6 Accrua1Accollnting tmd Valuation:Pricing Earnings 211Make sureyoureadthe sectiontitled''A Lessonfor theAnalyst" in Box6.5.The trail-fig PIE indicate
