So, what about the Stock Market? Maximillian Cohen, Pi, 1998

The Fair Valuation Model The Fair Valuation Model Provides a Complex Price Calculation for a Given Stock, Sector, Industry, or Market in a Perfectly Efficient Market. It is Derived from Fundamental Data but is Calculated with a Quant-Based Approach The overall structure is based on a Dividend Discount Model in which certain variables are replaced with highly complex and proprietary stochastic calculus calculations. Firm-specific variables: Long-run EPS growth rate Duration of Business-growth-cycle Volatility of EPS growth rate Systematic or beta risk of the firm Correlation between the firm's EPS and the interest rate environment EPS growth volatility Dividend payout ratio Buffer earnings

Interest rate related criteria: Interest rate (30 year yield) long-run level Duration of interest rate cycle Interest rate volatility The VE Fair Market Valuation uses 12-month historic and forecasted EPS values and the current 30-year treasury yield as primary determinants. When calculating risk/return values such as the Sharpe ratio, the historic periods used are five years. Currently, VE Provides Valuation Data on @4500 Stocks in Real Time with an additional 5000 or so Companies under Coverage. The Forecast Model The Forecast Model is Based on the Fair Valuation Model with additional Variable Calculations in an effort to Predict at what Price a Stock will actually Trade. ValuEngine uses a distinct forecasting model for 6 time horizons and each of the 11 sectors that ValuEngine covers. Additional Variables Utilized by the VE Forecast Model:

Short-term price reversals. Intermediate-term momentum continuation. Long-term price reversals. Short and long-term historic factors in the VE valuation model's calculation include past-valuation levels of the stock and its recent price-momentum factor relative to other stocks. These considerations, applied with the firmspecific variables, allow the model to differentiate a stock across sectors and within the company's own business-growth stages.
