VectorVest Composite Analysis
VectorVest identifies low-risk, high-reward stocks for prudent investors. Stocks with High Relative Value (RV) and High Relative Safety (RS) diminish risk and improve investment performance.
Stocks that meet VectorVest’s criteria for RV and RS based on its proprietary analytics are rated above 1.00.
Value: BIDU has a current Value of $49.71 per share. Therefore, it is overvalued compared to its Price of $85.73 per share based on forecasted earnings, forecasted earnings growth, profitability, interest and inflation rates. VectorVest favors the purchase of undervalued stocks rising in price. However, in combination with excellent Relative Value and Relative Safety ratings below, BIDU is appropriate for Prudent Investors.
RV (Relative Value): BIDU’s RV is 1.47, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. A long-term indicator of price appreciation potential, RV is far superior to a simple comparison of Price and Value since it is computed from an analysis of projected price appreciation for three years, and considers AAA Corporate Bond Rates and other risk factors.
RS (Relative Safety): BIDU’s RS is 1.28, which is very good on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. A risk indicator, RS is computed from an analysis of the consistency and predictability of a company's financial performance, debt to equity ratio, sales volume, business longevity, price volatility and other factors.
RT (Relative Timing): BIDU’s RT is 1.26, which is very good on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. A fast, smart, accurate indicator of a stock's price trend, RT is computed from an analysis of the direction, magnitude, and dynamics of a stock's price movements over time periods of one day, one week, one quarter and one year.
VST (VST-Vector): BIDU’s VST is 1.33, which is very good on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. VectorVest’s master indicator for ranking every stock in its database, VST is computed from the square root of a weighted sum of the squares of RV, RS, and RT. Stocks with the highest VST ratings have the best combinations of Value, Safety and Timing. These are the stocks to own for above average, long-term capital appreciation.
CI (Comfort Index): CI is an indicator that reflects a stock's ability to resist severe and/or lengthy price declines. BIDU has a CI rating of 1.79, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. VectorVest advocates the purchase of high CI stocks.
