It analyzes the company's potential to grow against your specific risk preferences and investment horizon.
We determine the current worth of AZZ Inc using both absolute as well as relative valuation methodologies to arrive at its intrinsic value. In general, an absolute valuation paradigm, as applied to this company, attempts to find the value of AZZ Inc based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing AZZ's financials, quarterly and monthly indicators, and related drivers such as dividends, operating cash flow, and various types of growth rates, we attempt to find the most accurate representation of AZZ's intrinsic value. In some cases, mostly for established, large-cap companies, we also incorporate more traditional valuation methods such as dividend discount, discounted cash flow, or asset-based models. As compared to an absolute model, our relative valuation model uses a comparative analysis of AZZ. We calculate exposure to AZZ's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to AZZ's related companies.
