You can use this intrinsic value and return on equity (ROI) calculator to help you evaluate a stock you might be researching. The calculator only requires three inputs: the current market price of the stock you're examining, the stock's earnings per share estimate, and the risk free interest rate.
The variables used in our online calculator are defined in detail below, including how to interpret the results.
This value is simply the current market price of the stock you're examining, stated in dollars per share.
This is the stocks earnings per share, which can be an estimate of future earnings, or stated in terms of historical earnings. If you're calculating intrinsic value or expected return on investment, you'd be using a predicted / earnings estimate. If you're evaluating the historical performance, you would be using earnings as reported by the company in the past.
This is the risk free rate of interest. Most stock analysts use the interest rate on a one year Treasury Bill (T-Bills) as a proxy for the risk-free rate of interest.
This is the calculated intrinsic value for this security, stated in dollars per share.
This is the return on investment for this stock, which is based exclusively on the earnings estimate. This particular calculator does not take into account a rise in the market price of the stock over time.
