Two Methods that Analysts Use to Evaluate Stocks
★ SUMMARY ★
What methods to analysts use to come up with the evaluations of buy, hold, or sell recommendations of stocks, or underperformed, inline, or over performed that analysts give on stocks or companies. They are really projecting earnings reports and changing their report figures for the EPS earnings numbers but I want to discuss how they come up with this data in terms of the bigger picture.
What are the two primary ways analysts evaluate stocks?
What are absolute value and relative value?
Absolute value is if you evaluate the stock and negate the market and negate every other stock out there. You can think of it like taking a stock and putting it all on its own. Then you would look at how it would perform or how it would survive in that environment. You can think of absolute value as the stock being absolutely all on its own.
The relative value is how the stock or the company relates to other stocks or companies in its sector or in its industry. For instance, if you were to look at Facebook you would look at face book in line with how it’s doing compared to the market, how it is doing compared to twitter, LinkedIn, or any other social media stocks. You could even compare it to other technology stocks. Then you are getting a relative value of how the stock is performing or doing.

Owned buildings at another site may be used as alternate workspace if a building cannot be occupied. This depends upon the location of the building and whether the building would be affected by the same hazard that prevented use of the primary building. The alternate facility may be a viable business recovery strategy if the building can be configured with the required equipment or existing equipment can be configured to need business requirements.
Systems and Equipment.
Evaluate these systems to determine whether they meet the needs of the program. Identify and plan to overcome emergency communication system limitations such as weak radio or cellular service or areas where a warning system cannot be heard. Upgrading this critically important system may be required. Verify that these systems are in reliable working condition.
If fuel, battery backup power or batteries are required, make sure the system can run for the required time and chargers are available. Document how to operate these systems and mark the locations of controls. Make sure the information is available during an emergency. Many of these systems also require periodic inspection, testing and maintenance in accordance with national codes and standards. Train staff so a knowledgeable person is able to operate systems and equipment.
Materials and Supplies.
Be sure to compile a list of available resources using the Emergency Response Resource Requirements and Business Continuity Resource Requirements worksheets as a guide.
Preparing for an emergency, responding to an emergency, executing business recovery strategies and other activities require resources that come from outside the business. If there were a fire in the building, you would call the fire department. Contractors and vendors may be needed to prepare a facility for a forecast storm or to help repair and restore a building, systems or equipment following an incident.
The following external resources should be identified within plan documents. Include contact information to reach them during an emergency and any additional instructions within the preparedness plan.
Public Emergency Services.
Contractors and Vendors.
