Fundamental Analysis

Comparables model


Earlier on in this course, we discussed P/E ratios and P/B ratios. Both of which are quick tools that can be used to contrast the price of a stock with the underlying performance of the company.


Both of these ratios are known as multiples and then can be utilized in a valuation model called the comparables model. the main concept is that stocks from a similar category should be priced in a similar way.


For example, an investor could compare the value of technology stocks. If there are significant differences between stocks, it may indicate that one of them is a worthwhile investment.


In the comparables model, investors would select different ratios that they want to use to compare different companies. The most common are the P/E ratio and the P/B ratio – which we have already covered.
