Pick a company and value it using a variety of alternative methodologies.
You are to comment critically on the validity of the different approaches in the specific case of the company you have chosen, explaining the significance of the differences in valuation that arise.
Please choose one of the following firms:
Barratt Developments plc
Bovis Homes Group plc
Crest Nicholson Holdings plc
Galliford Try plc
Taylor Wimpey plc
The Berkeley Group Holdings plc
You may well choose to make use of analysts’ reports or other commercial forecasts. That is fine, but please make sure that you identify the source and appraise it critically. Please also produce a forecast for the company’s share price on 1 July 2018.
You are able to include an optional appendix with figures or tables that should be no more than three pages long (restrict these to ones that are strictly necessary to support your argument).
Please include referenced graphics, tables and diagrams.
The client has advised to use relatively simple methodologies (e.g. cash flow analysis, discounted dividend valuation). The client is a Business student and therefore does not have a high level of knowledge of financial valuation methodologies.
It is up to the writer to decide how many methods should be used.
