  • "Just one more question. What are you using for a discount rate in figuring "my value"

    I don't figure it that way. I search for low ratios, compared to other companies: for example, low price to sales ratio compared with other companies that are similar, low price to cash-flow, low price to earnings, low ratio of price to book value. I search as well for big stock price declines that don't seem to be warranted, purchases by insiders, etc

    Then I dream that I am a rich man and ask myself what I would pay for the whole company.

    Remembering my own shortcomings, in that I am quite unable to reach a precise understanding of what is the intrinsic value of any security, I would try to make a low-ball offering, it's "my value"...
