2 Stock Picking Idea using Residual Income Valuation: For stocks of interest, calculate V, the value per share using residual income valuation which relies on earnings forecasts. Then calculate the ratio of V to P, the current price per share. For example for Microsoft we have a ratio of 38.19/15.97 = 2.39 (If only we could believe the earnings forecast!) Idea : Buy stocks which have the highest ratio of V/P.
3 Academic Studies of Stock Picking Idea Academic studies have shown that this stock picking idea has worked in the past. Although the academic studies used the same per share approach that we used to calculate V, they were more sophisticated in how they treated continuing value.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
