MSFT Price Forecast Based on Dividend Discount Model

Current PriceDDM Fair Value Target: Forecasted Gain:
$446.34$50.15 -84.1%

The Dividend Discount Model (DDM) is a valuation model that attempts to determine a fair share price for a stock, based on the dividend it provides in comparison to several company-specific metrics indicative of the riskiness of the stock and the financial health of the company. In the case of MSFT, the DDM model, as implemented by StockNews, implies a negative return of 84.1% relative to its current price. To help understand and contextualize the model's evaluation of MSFT, investors may wish to consider are:

  • Amongst its dividend-issuing peers in the mega-sized market cap category, MSFT has a beta lower than only 10% of them.
  • Regarding its relative worth based on the dividend discount model, MSFT's provides a return of -84.1% based on the forecast of the dividend discount model we used relative to its current share price; this is a better return than 9.31% of all stocks we measured with our dividend discount model.
