We determine the current worth of News Corporation 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 News based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing News'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 News'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 News. We calculate exposure to News's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to News's related companies.
