How does this compare to your company’s current stock price? The company’s current stock price is set at $127.70 (as of 4/16/2011), and is pretty accurately measured by the Price/Cash Flow ratio using the mean from the selected companies ($123.76), but is still slightly lower than the actual current valuation. An even more accurate ratio however is the 2010 Price/Sales ratio ($129.93), but is still slightly over the true value of the company. A glance at the 5-year stock price chart on Google finance shows that the stock price reveals that the company has dramatic valuation cycles, having been around $50 in 2006, up to $140 in the middle of 2008 and shooting back down to $50 at the end of the year, but then increasing back to the $120 price area through the years of 2009-2011.

Unformatted text preview: company? Judging from the extreme variation in the valuation of the Flowserve Corp in the previous years, it is very hard for this assignment to give an accurate valuation of the company, seeing as throughout the year of 2009 (where the majority of this data comes from), the price had increased from the dramatic fall in 2008 from around $55 up to $105.

    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.
