This is the model where all capital sources such as long-term debts and its stocks are included, multiplied by its proportional weight and then all summed up. Based on bank's prime lending rate in 2012, the U.S, the Rate of Debts is 3.25% and the Tax Rate (from the company's annual report) = 43%, we have: WACC = WeightOfDebt × RateOfDebt × (1− TaxRate) + WeightOfEquity × RateOf Return TL TE # = × (1− TaxRate) + × RateOf Return = .081 TA TA Details(of(calculation(attached(in(excel(file(attached(and(Annex.(( ( IV.##RELATIVE#VALUATION#ANALYSIS##WITH#P/E#;##P/BV#,##P/CF##,###P/S# # PRICE#TO#EARNINGS#RATIO#(P/E)# Given:#Current#price#of#share#=P=#$94.41#######EPS=#$13.62#######gn#=#2%# P/E#Chevron#=#P/EPS(1+gn)=7.22# #

(Given CSO= 1,966,999 mil) P/BV= P/BVPS =94.41/62= 1.55, higher as compared to the industry's is 1.25. As Chevron is an oil company, it has a large amount of tangible assets; its Price to Book Value is an important indicator to measuring its stock (unlike Software or FMCG industry, normally with low tangible assets, P/BV might not reflect correctly their values). With P/BV = 1.55, higher than the mean of industry, it#implied#investors#are#willing#to# pay#more#for#the#stock,#in#other#words,#they#value#it#more#than#other#stocks.#It#also# has#another#implication#that#the#investors#expect#their#investment#on#Chevron#stock# to#create#more#value#than#other#stocks#in#same#industry.

The industry's mean P/S is 1.16. From given formula, this ratio is another way to compare value of stock: Net Sales over year 2011 of the company is divided by total number of Common shares outstanding. Sales of Chevron in 2011 increased 23% (from $USD 198,198 Mil to $USD 244,371); coupled with its low P/S .776, this makes Chevron an attractive investment.
