Financial Terms Every Trader Should Learn


Valuation Measures

Enterprise Value/EBITDA
Formula: Enterprise Value / EBITDA
Firm value compared against EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization).

Enterprise Value
Formula: Market Cap + Total Debt - Total Cash & Short Term Investments
EV is a measure of theoretical takeover price, and is useful in comparisons against income statement line items above the interest expense/income lines such as revenue and EBITDA.

Enterprise Value/Revenue
Formula: Enterprise Value / Total Revenues
Firm value compared against revenue. Provides a more rigorous comparison than the Price/Sales ratio by removing the effects of capitalization from both sides of the ratio. Since revenue is unaffected by the interest income/expense line item, the appropriate value comparison should also remove the effects of capitalization, as EV does.

Forward P/E Ratio
Formula: Current Market Price / Projected Earnings Per Share
A valuation ratio calculated by dividing the current market price by projected 12-month Earnings Per Share.

Market Cap
Formula: Current Market Price Per Share x Number of Shares Outstanding
The total dollar value of all outstanding shares. Computed as shares times the current market price. Capitalization is a measure of corporate size.

PEG Ratio
Formula: P/E Ratio / 5-Yr Expected EPS Growth
Forward-looking measure rather than typical earnings growth measures, which look back in time (historical). Used to measure a stock's valuation against its projected 5-yr growth rate.

Price/Book Ratio
Formula: Current Market Price / Book Value Per Share
A valuation ratio calculated by dividing the current market price by the most recent quarter's (mrq) Book Value Per Share.

Price/Sales Ratio
Formula: Current Market Price / Total Revenues Per Share
A valuation ratio calculated by dividing the current market price by trailing 12-month (ttm) Total Revenues. Often used to value unprofitable companies.

Trailing P/E Ratio
Formula: Current Market Price / Earnings Per Share
A popular valuation ratio calculated by dividing the current market price by trailing 12-month (ttm) Earnings Per Share.

Financial Highlights

Book Value Per Share
Formula: Total Common Equity / Total Common Shares Outstanding
This is defined as the Common Shareholder's Equity divided by the Shares Outstanding at the end of the most recent fiscal quarter.

Current Ratio
Formula: Total Current Assets / Total Current Liabilities
This is the ratio of Total Current Assets for the most recent quarter divided by Total Current Liabilities for the same period.

Diluted EPS
Formula: (Net Income - Preferred Dividend and Other Adjustments)/ Weighted Average Diluted Shares Outstanding
This is the Adjusted Income Available to Common Stockholders (based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, GAAP) for the trailing 12 months divided by the trailing 12 month weighted average shares outstanding. Diluted EPS uses diluted weighted average shares in the calculation, or the weighted average shares assuming all convertible securities are exercised.

EBITDA
The accounting acronym EBITDA stands for "Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation, and Amortization."

Fiscal Year Ends
The date of the end of the firm's accounting year.

Gross Profit
Formula: Total Revenues - Cost of Revenues
This item represents Total Revenues minus Cost Of Goods Sold, Total.

Levered Free Cash Flow
Formula: (EBIT + Interest Expense) x (1 x Tax Rate) + Depreciation & Amort., Total + Other Amortization + Capital Expenditure + Sale (Purchase) of Intangible assets - Change in Net Working Capital + Pref. Dividends Paid + Total Debt Repaid + Total Debt Issued + Repurchase of Preferred + Issuance of Preferred Stock
Where: Tax Rate = 37.5%
This figure is a normalized item that excludes non-recurring items and also takes into consideration cash inflows from financing activities such as debt or preferred stock issuances.

Operating Cash Flow
Formula: Net Income + Depreciation and Amortization, Total + Other Amortization + Other Non-Cash Items, Total + Change in Working Capital
Net cash used or generated in operating activities during the stated period of time. It reflects net impact of all operating activity transactions on the cash flow of the entity. This GAAP figure is taken directly from the company's Cash Flow Statement and might include significant non-recurring items.

Operating Margin
Formula: [(Total Revenues - Total Operating Costs) / (Total Revenues)] x 100
This item represents the difference between the Total Revenues and the Total Operating Costs divided by Total Revenues, and is expressed as a percentage. Total Operating Costs consist of: (a) Cost of Goods Sold (b) Total (c) Selling, General & Administrative Expenses (d) Total R & D Expenses (e) Depreciation & Amortization and (f) Total Other Operating Expenses, Total. A ratio used to measure a company's operating efficiency.

Profit Margin
Formula: (Net Income / Total Revenues) x 100
Also known as Return on Sales, this value is the Net Income After Taxes for the trailing 12 months divided by Total Revenue for the same period and is expressed as a percentage.

Quarterly Earnings Growth
Formula: [(Qtrly Net Income - Qtrly Net Income (yr ago)) / Qtrly Net Income (yr ago)] x 100
The growth of Quarterly Net Income from the same quarter a year ago.

Quarterly Revenue Growth
Formula: [(Qtrly Total Revenues - Qtrly Total Revenues (yr ago)) / Qtrly Total Revenues (yr ago)] x 100
The growth of Quarterly Total Revenues from the same quarter a year ago.

The Total Debt on the balance sheet as of the most recent quarter.

Total Debt / Total Equity
Formula: [(Long-term Debt + Capital Leases + Finance Division Debt Non-Current + Short-term Borrowings + Current Portion of Long-term Debt + Current Portion of Capital Lease Obligation + Finance Division Debt Current) / (Total Common Equity + Total Preferred Equity)] x 100
This ratio is Total Debt for the most recent fiscal quarter divided by Total Shareholder Equity for the same period.

Guess ? (GES); a Story of Executive Exodus and Brand Erosion

Retail players like Abercrombie and Fitch (ANF), Michael Kors (KORS) and Fossil (FOSL) are fiercely competing on price. Guess's conference call (CC) tone over the past two quarters has worsened as margins search for a bottom. Two senior executives have resigned and we expect the stock to fall as the GES brand is too expensive with the targeted 30-somethings.
.
CFO Dennis R. Secor announced his resignation after six years on November 1, and FOSL announced his hire and promotion to CFO on November 8. Yet Secor's official departure date from GES will be  December 7, this corporate business psychology signals desperation in our opinion as FOSL is a direct competitor. As a matter of fact, the last CC was filled with excuses of weakening fashion accessory sales, exactly where FOSL has a strong foothold with growth and a lot less inventory / days sales outstanding (DSO) problems. 

FOSL's long-term fundamentals look intact as GES struggles; CFO Secor's resignation and quick hire by FOSL hints at deeper brand problems in our opinion. Operating margins at GES have declined from 17% in 2009 to 15.5% in 2012.  Sales fell 6% y/y last Q versus FOSL's  sales growth of 15% y/y.
.
COO J. Michael Prince announced his resignation on November 1 as well and his official departure date is this Monday, November 26, just 2-days ahead of the Q3 earnings release and CC. If a retail competitor hires Prince, that will be another nail in GES's eroding brand and balance sheet position.
.
On the May, 22, 2013, Q1 CC (click) at the 11minute:25second mark, co stated it had a cash and cash equivalents balance of $490M. That $490M has fallen by 44% to $271.9M in just 6-months; part of the reason for this cash depletion is as an ill-timed share buyback program. Please click here and scroll down to Q1, 2013 to see the precipitous drop in cash and cash equivalents.
.
The founding Marciano bros pictured above, Maurice 63 and Paul 60, are still in control as Co-CEOs. But the resignation of Carlos Alberini, who served as President and COO from 2000 - 2010, and now Prince and Secor gives us serious pause about the near-term future of the Guess brand. Every investor that bought and held the shares since mid-2009 has lost, that is a damningly negative fact since we have experienced massive global stimulus and  dead-catting stock markets.  
.
GES has and is misfiring from many fundamental perspectives; the Point & Figure chart confirms our thesis that lower prices are ahead. A double-bottom breakdown poses a serious danger for longs:


A hard economic downturn in this Q4 continues as uncertainty looms about the U.S. fiscal cliff and health of southern Europe. Though GES is doing better than average in Germany, Russia, and South Korea as mentioned on the last CC, about 38% and 14% of sales come from the fiscally fickle and unemployed countries of the U.S.A. and Italy.  
.
The co does not break down sales in Europe by country except for Italy, but execs did mention excitement around Spain as a future growth driver; this to us is laughable as southern Europe struggles with Goliath socioeconomic crises.
.
The following metrics are from the last 10-K (click), dated March 19, 2012:



2012
2011
2010
Net Sales:
U.S.A. 

$1,031,131
$989,243
$908,107
Italy
$375,385$418,115$366,563
Canada
$295,574$286,449$252,523
Other foreign countries
$985,958$793,487$601,273

$2,688,048
$2,487,294
$2,128,466


GES reports Q3, 2013 earnings this Wednesday, (click) November 28, 2012, after market close and we expect fireworks.

Maybe the mass exodus of executives reflects the lack of pricing power and brand erosion, while the Buy & Hold investor refuses to admit the ride with Guess is heading lower.

Euro-zone is in Bloody Trouble; Shattered Stock Markets should be the Norm in 2013


Euro-zone economy is headed for its weakest quarter since early 2009, according to business surveys that showed companies witnessing deteriorating order books (book-to-bill ratio) in November. Banks and Hotels are performing poorly and laying off employees at an accelerating pace; impact on the stock prices should be negative in 2013 as the average consumer's psychology is shattered.

The flash service sector the Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) fell to 45.7 this month, lowest number since July 2009; survey showed on Thursday, failing to meet expectations of economists who thought it would hold at October's anemic 46.0. It has been stuck under 50 for 10 straight months, 50 is the number that divides growth from contraction. 


With more austerity being piped, a reminder of the thorny sovereign debt crisis in this week's failure of lenders to agree more aid for Greece, prospects for next year look dim.


The concern about the outlook is getting worse as the Euro-zone races towards 2013, many economists agree that German companies have become pessimistic about 2013.


PMI had its biggest decline in November month over month since early 2009, when the U.S. was spiraling into the bail-out new abnormal abyss.


There is no positive conviction among businesses that conditions will improve in 2013. Service sector companies are more pessimistic than at any time since 2009, when the expectations index fell to 48.6 and the zone was experiencing its worst post-war recession.

Economists polled by Reuters remain divided over whether the European Central Bank will cut its main refinancing rate from 0.75% to a new record low 0.5 percent or lower.


POTC predicts the Euro-zone stock indexes will be 20%+ lower this time next year as structural fissures are too deep and jagged to fix. Euros need a new technological growth paradigm to emerge overnight or they must move to abolish and dissolve big Govt agency control in favor of lower taxes and less regulatory barriers for private business.

U.S. Capitalistic Extinction Looms: American Genius & Exceptionalism has Morphed to American Ignorance and Subjugation; the Obama Wildebeest Explained

If you voted for Obama you are an example of how American business genius has swung to American business ignorance, and how American morality has swung to American immorality.  

Your vote proclaimed that you are happy with expanded regulations on small businesses and job creators, higher health care costs for all still employed, a warting welfare society, and chastising individual success with higher taxes is a sensible idea. 

A majority of your ancestors ran from and immigrated because of Govt overreach in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. New York's Ellis Island and the Lady Liberty stood proud; paradoxically some of your ancestors fought and died for your freedom to vote and you cast in favor of greater Subjugation

Your vote said I could care less
1.) That the budget has not been balanced even once in the last 4-years, 
2.) That the the cloud-seeding $16 Trillion national debt is no different than Greece and threatens socioeconomic mayhem 
3.) That a man has zero private sector business experience while national unemployment is at 7.9%, 
4.) That a man pushed for a bill in IL that would allow infanticide (aborting a baby that is 7+ months),
5.) That a man and his Administration covered-up the death of U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans, including two Navy SEALs, especially the super brave Tyrone Woods. 


The Obama flock is actually less intelligent than the Kenyan Wildebeest, as those creatures are forced to drink from the banks of the same croc infested river from year to year to survive; you were not forced yet voted for a journey to Capitalistic extinction



If you wished to one day visit Greece or Spain, please do not book any trips as you are well on your way.

Obama should be Scratched and Given Non-Starter Status


With just hours to Tuesday's, November, 6, 2012, 57th Quadrennial U.S. Presidential election,  Capitalist Pig Bob urges all forward-thinking Americans to VOTE for Elephant Romney regardless whether Donkey Obama makes the starting gate.

If know anyone who lives in any of these states: FL, IAMINH, OHPA, VA, or WI, please call them and let them know how important Tuesday's election is.   

Obama's unapologetic and clamantly partisan record must seal his single-term legacy.
1.) Hiring an Anti-Energy Secretary in Stephen Chu who admitted he does not own a car and has stated that high gas prices are a good thing while Obama promised Energy Independence in 10-years in 2008 at the 2-minute mark at the 3rd Obama/McCain debate. Today's 7.9% unemployment rate would be much lower if we had an aggressive 'All of the Above' energy policy. The rate is 10.7% if we model using the same Labor participation percentage rate on the day Obama took office. We know some economists argue this statistic is skewed because a lot of baby boomers are retiring, agree, yet it is a sad fact that 50%+ of young people with recent bachelor's degrees are underemployed and working as waiters, bartenders, and retail store clerks, reported Hope Yen of the Associated Press in April, 2012. Obama's decision to invest $90B in green-energy projects has backfired as Abound Solar and Solyndra are two examples of Obama subsidized cos to a tune of $400M and $500M respectively that already went bankrupt. Focusing on funding green-energy while being anti coal, oil, nuclear, and natural-gas is responsible for higher gas prices and the highest unemployment rate of almost every Donkey or Elephant mudding for a 2nd term.   
  
2.) An overreaching Dodd-Queen Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that has in fact expanded 'Too Big Too Fail Banks'; this is choking down on the reigns of the thoroughbred American risk-taker from investing and hiring incremental employees. 

From the Heritage Foundation's Amy Payne:
"Dodd–Frank does not end bailouts and taxpayer support for big banks. Under the act, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is permitted to purchase the assets of a failing  firm, guarantee the obligations of a failing firm, take a security interest in the assets of a failing firm, and borrow on the failed firm’s total consolidated assets. (For Bank of America, that would be $2 trillion in bailout authority to be paid by taxpayers.)"

3.) Driving through the Affordable Healthcare mandate that even Sussman, Cooper, and Phillips of the New York Times note that 66% of Americans oppose and want to see parts of it repealed. More importantly, there is a link to a graphic in that article that shows a majority of Americans were opposed to Obamacare as it was debated and passed.
4.) The cover-up in Benghazi, Libya was blamed on a YouTube video for nearly 2-weeks after the deaths of a U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens (1st Ambassador killed since 1979), and 3 other Americans including two Navy SEALs: Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

The valor of all these Americans who fought-off but were eventually murdered by the   radical Islamic terrorists that we believe were not motivated by any YouTube video, must never be forgotten, but especially Tyrone Woods. The last hours of Tyrone's life must be taught to your children, especially if you have boys. Here is what and how Tyrone's father feels about the high-level people in this Obama Administration; I stand with him 100%. 

My most optimistic thoughts and heartfelt Sunday prayers are with all the ones still suffering on the East coast post Hurricane Sandy. If Obama was an Elephant, Sandy would most likely be his Katrina.

Yet the modern news media like MS-LSD-NBC, Yahoo!, and the Puffington Post, only shower this Donkey with praise. Men like Chris 'Crucify U.S.A.' Matthews, Rachel 'Man-off', and the new CEO of Yahoo! "Marissa 'Ma-your' true election headlines be quashed", should all be boycotted. Case in point is the large crowds showing-up at Mitt Romney events are electrified versus the incumbent's inability to run on his record, yet their reporting is biased.

Every American soldier who paid the ultimate sacrifice on the beaches of Normandy, France, and elsewhere,  would be saddened and in total shock.

The United States has never been closer to extinguishing the American Dream from within and nearly 50% of the voting masses perfectly okay with a Collectivist society. And this Big Govt mentality is paradoxically being nudged over the imminent fiscal cliff by some of the aforementioned people who espouse their 1st Amendment rights by stoking class warfare and chastising successful hard working men and women. 

There is no doubt that Obama inherited multiple crises and that President George W. Bush and his Secretary of the Treasury Henry 'Hank' Paulson started the Big Govt bailouts instead of allowing a natural forest fire to burn the bad bets and risk-takers; having some filing for bankruptcy and then witnessing what CNBC's Larry Kudlow would call "private equity green shoots sprouting from the ashes".  

The Elephants sparked this fiscal forest fire, but the Donkeys doused the early flames with Chorine trifluoride and all 50 states are in the path of socioeconomic mayhem when you factor the $16 Trillion National Debt and 4-years running with not one balanced budget in the Animal Kingdom of Washington, D.C.

U.S. politicians have turned workable multi-billion dollar debts and deficits to unworkable trillions; a Collectivist society cannot prosper, innovate, and lead the 21st Century. 

The Donkeys have taken advantage of this deeply rooted economic trough, seeded in fact by one of their early Collectivist predecessors President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR). Through their tax, legislate, regulate, & spend policies they have forced the once Free-Market needle to point at Collectivism.

If you compare the U.S. presidential, election to the Breeders' Cup or Triple Crown of thoroughbred horse racing, Mr. Barry Soetoro aka President Barack Hussein Obama would be designated non-starter status before the starting gate on Tuesday, November 6, 2012; scratched by the citizen Veterinarians for having the lamest 4-year fiscal record of any president in history; Forward~

If you enjoyed this political rant, Please share it with friends & family. 
God Bless the United States of America,
POTC-
