Introduction

This case requires the valuation of Walmart stock as of February 2010 based on company and market data up to 2010. Determination of the stock value will aid in the decision to recommend Walmart stock as an investment to clients. The valuation of stock is based on estimations of various parameters using various prediction models. Several models are available to aid in estimating stock prices and they are utilized herein. The dividend discount model, future dividends and a terminal value, the three-stage approach and use of P/E ratios are all utilized in this analysis to best determine a buy/hold/sell recommendation for clients.

One respected analyst issued a forecast of constant perpetual dividend growth of 5.0 percent. The consensus annual Walmart dividend amount for the next fiscal year is $1.21. The final variable needed is the investor’s required rate of return. The Capital Asset Pricing Model is useful in determining this value. It evaluates the expected return on risk-free investments like government…...
