The closing price of BUD was 128.27 on April 24, 2016. However, I believe it is undervalued, and I value the stock price to be $162.49. My recommendation is that BUD stocks should be bought by investors because the company`s dividend has a high average growth rate, the company has a higher cash flow per share than the market average and experiences high earnings per share (EPS) growth with a strong return

One cannot rule out investor psychology in causing this effect. This paper attempts to assess the relative importance of prospect theory and other explanations for the disposition effect. When one takes the purchase price as the reference price in the value function, then the implication of prospect theory is that the tendency to sell a stock should decline as the stock price moves away from the purchase price irrespective of the direction. The regressions are run for different holding periods, and they include a host of control variables, such as past returns. In contrast to the mean-reversion hypothesis, outperformance actually decreases selling for loss-making positions.

In simple words, economists allocate a monetary value to each second we spent.

(2002) identified that corporations always tended to achieve the target of leverage levels in the static trade-off theory when increase or retire a larger amount of new capital. The study also found that the higher the market-to-book ratio of corporations, the lower the target of debt ratios. Frank and Goyal (2004) stated that the deviation from the leverage ratio were useful in predicting the adjustment of debt, but not in the adjustment of equity. The study show that when the different between the present value of tax shields and the present value of financial distress cost reached the maximization, the optimal leverage was gained. This study also pointed out that the important of firm size for determining the validity of the trade-off theory.
Thereby having a positive flow of cash will increase land prices and overall net worth of firms; this is also the same for asset holdings (Nada, 2008). Iwaisako in “96” helped shine some light on the “debate on land price inflation, and banks roles in fueling real estate lending (Nada, 2008, p.59).” There was another paper that was written by Peek and Rosengren in 2000 that showed Japanese Markets and when their lending slowed down the construction projects in the U.S. fell as well (Nada, 2008). In the first part of the study it tested to see who was the main force in bank lending. The second part was how bank credit affected the value of land. Then third part was just the conclusion.
