We provide trade recommendations to complement the recent expert consensus on RealNetworks. Our dynamic recommendation engine exercises a multidimensional algorithm to analyze the firm's potential to grow using all technical and fundamental data available at the time.
We determine the current worth of Realnetworks 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 Realnetworks based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing Realnetworks'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 Realnetworks'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 Realnetworks. We calculate exposure to Realnetworks's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to Realnetworks's related companies.
