[OSV Tutorial] FINAL lesson on valuation and closing words

This is the last tutorial but it's a doozy.

I cover how to use OSV Online to do a DCF, Graham's formula and EBIT valuation.
Because it's too long for an email, I've created a guide for you to download and follow along.

If I have to sum up valuation in one sentence, it's this.

Valuation is more art than science.

Depending on what the latest growth estimate or EPS is, valuation will change. Depending on your outlook vs somebody else, valuation will be different.

Keeping with the art theme.

Think of the valuation methods as a paintbrush.

A paintbrush is simply a tool. Depending on the person, a paintbrush could be used to paint a wall, abstract art, graffiti or a beautiful landscape.

There are many people who don't understand this. A real example of what valuation is not.

Sorry to leave the service after using it for only one day.
Doing my very first stock research yesterday and today I found an inaccuracy that makes me feel that I have to recheck the important indicators myself before relying on it. (e.g. regarding the Graham valuation calculation of AMKR - yesterday it was calculated as $15 but today it shows up as $5 even though the stock reported ok numbers and lost about 10% over night).

With latest results, AMKR growth estimates is adjusted down due to many factors. Calculating the upside and downside scenario should have covered this. One of the main reasons why auto valuation is not encouraged for screening.
