In general, an absolute valuation paradigm, as applied to this company, attempts to find the value of EZCORP Inc based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing EZCORP'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 EZCORP'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.

We calculate exposure to EZCORP's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to EZCORP's related companies.
