It helps to project a fair market value of Ford stock properly, considering its historical fundamentals such as Z Score. Since HP's main accounts across its financial reports are all linked and dependent on each other, it is essential to analyze all possible correlations between related accounts. However, instead of reviewing all of HP's historical financial statements, investors can examine the correlated drivers to determine its overall health.

The market value of HP Inc is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of HP that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of HP's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is HP's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because HP's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect HP's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between HP's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine HP value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, HP's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
