This firm has 683 M in debt with debt to equity (D/E) ratio of 1.78, which is OK given its current industry classification. Our trade recommendation module complements current analysts and expert consensus on Teradata. It analyzes the company potential to grow using all fundamental, technical, and market related data available at the time.
We determine the current worth of Teradata Corp 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 Teradata Corp based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing Teradata Corp'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 Teradata Corp'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 Teradata Corp. We calculate exposure to Teradata Corp's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to Teradata Corp's related companies.

However, we do advice investors to further question Teradata expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk.
