With the launch of our new interactive analyst reports we complete a monthly review of the approximately 750 valuations in our data-set. This inv
olves a review of the assumptions we are using in the valuations. We use consensus analyst estimates as the basis of our assumptions. For example – consensus analyst estimates of revenues for New Zealand's largest listed company Telecom New Zealand ($TEL.NZ). Valuecruncher uses these numbers and our own assessments of other valuation assumptions such as the discount rate and terminal growth rate.
At Valuecruncher we then pull all of these variables together and place a valuation on the shares of the companies in our data-set and provide a recommendation. You can either simply look at our valuations – or for all the experts out there, you can change the assumptions we have used and modify the valuation. Modified valuations can be saved and shared.
With the completion of our monthly review of the companies on the NZX (New Zealand stock exchange) we decided to outline what we at Valuecruncher see as the most undervalued (the best buys).
We should note that you can always find a list of the Valuecruncher buy recommendations for the NZX from the most undervalued using our filters. The following list highlights the top five buys based on the latest review of the valuation assumptions.
