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