I'm looking at various stocks on finance websites and noticed that some of them don't have a 1-year Target price. How can I calculate estimated target price of a stock myself based on the company's fundamentals/analysis, PE ratios, and other variables? I'm looking for a number of different formulas that can give me various estimated target prices.

    If there was such a thing as being able to accurately determine the price at which you should sell, wouldn't everyone be doing that, creating a self fulfilling proposition? Knowing that price point, short sellers would then come in at that price, driving it back down to where it all began. Wash, rinse, repeat. That's not going to happen because such analysis is based on differing opinions of what metrics are important. That's the reason that you're getting various estimated target prices. – Bob Baerker Feb 11 at 3:14
  • Wasn't what I was asking. I was asking HOW to estimate target prices. Formulas that analysts use to calculate their target prices. – peppy Feb 12 at 7:23
  • Investment banks hire a multitude of quants to analyze every aspect of the companies they follow in order to forecast earnings for the coming years. From that they extrapolate target prices. And even then, they don't get it right. Good luck doing better than they do. – Bob Baerker Feb 12 at 18:09
