Exactly--

This is my question from my previous post. Should the over $1B of Cash the company has on hand be added on a per share basis to the amount calculated by the Cash Flow Calculator estimate of Intrinsic Value?

MARL517


In this case, the company has over $1B in the bank and other assets--buildings, plant, equipment,etc. I'd think you need to add the estimated value of the company's assets to the Intrinsic Value per share output of the Cash Flow Calculator to estimate the true value of the company.

BigFrog,

You provided a fine answer on considering the PPE assets, on how you should not double count them; however, I believe the OP may have also been asking about the value of cash ($1B in the bank) and if the MF calculator considered that as well.
