  4. 4. Tips-n-Tricks : Equity: Do Not Forget • Remember that technical analysis is a direct violation of weak-form EMH and Fundamental analysis is a direct violation of semi-strong from EMH • Concepts that need to be crystal clear before entering the exam hall: The difference in FCFE and FCFF and which discount rate is applicable under both of them is of utmost importance. • Don’t forget to discount the terminal value while calculating the intrinsic value of a stock in the exam. This is a general mistake which students do. • Never confuse between the required rate of return and the growth rate in the Gordon Growth Model Equation. • The top-down approach is a method of valuation that begins with first analyzing the overall economy and then continuing to drill down to the specific analysis. • Enterprise Value (EV) = Market Cap (of Equity) + Market Value of Debt - Cash and Cash Equivalents (including marketable securities) © EduPristine (Confidential) 3

  7. 7. Tips-n-Tricks : Fixed Income Revision Contd… • Advanced Features of Bonds  Duration & Convexity  Effective duration (D) = (V--V+)/(2V0(Δy))  Modified Duration = Macaulay Duration /(1+ YTM) % P [ Duration * y Convexity * ( y ) 2 ] *100  Other Duration Measures  PVBP=Duration*0.01%*Bond Value  Term Structure Theories  Pure Expectations Hypothesis  Liquidity Preference Theory  Market Segmentation Theory © EduPristine (Confidential) 6

  9. 9. Tips-n-Tricks : Fixed Income: Do not Forget • The Current Yield of a bond DOES NOT CHANGE with frequency of coupon payments. It is same for annual pay, semi-annual pay, quarterly pay or any other frequency coupon payments. • While calculating Forward Rates from Spot Rates or Spot Rates from Forward Rates always draw the timeline with the cash flows for valuing fixed income securities. There is less scope of error when you visually understand what needs to be calculated. • While asked to find the YTM of a bond, don't forget to adjust the outcome of I/Y on calculator with frequency of coupon payments. If you are calculating YTM using semi-annual coupon payments, multiply the outcome of I/Y * 2. • PMT=0 always for Zero coupon bonds. If you don’t explicitly press PMT=0, then the calculator will take the PMT value of your previous TVM calculation. • While calculating the Yield to Call (YTC) or Yield to Put (YTP), FV changes to the Call Price or Put Price and not PV, and N changes to the Time till the call date. • Effective Duration calculations explicitly take into account the a bond’s option provisions such as embedded options. Only Callable bonds exhibit negative effective convexity and it is more prominent at lower interest rates. The other methods (Macaulay & Modified) ignore the option provision completely. The Macaulay and Modified Duration of a Callable Bond are always positive since they do not factor in the option. © EduPristine (Confidential) 8
