This tool, ValueCruncher, is a personal favorite because from business school days I have always liked to do simple what-if analysis based on my best assumptions for the growth in earnings and revenues for a company. I know – this is like NPV-Net Present Value analysis – subject to highly variable assumptions. But that is exactly the purpose of what if analysis.
What is really helpful about ValueCruncher is the fact that it know not only about a stocks current stock prices but also the basic P+L and Balance Sheet data which it automatically retrieves for you. this makes doing projections on a stock’s value very easy to do. Even more helpful, ValueCruncher has a useful getting-started page describing how to use the tool for your specific analyses. In sum, ValueCruncher is a tool that warms the Numeric Beaver in me.
