Just out of curiosity, I was checking out the Morningstar fair values for my companies and surprisingly, they were all very close, minus AEO. So just for fun, here is a comparison of the intrinsic values between the companies I have written about on this blog between Morningstar and my fair value calculator. Small caps are not covered by Morningstar, so I have left them out.

So in the spirit of having some fun with stock valuation, it doesn’t seem like I need to bother with a premium Morningstar membership. I get pretty much the same quantitative assumptions with 100% control. You too start saving time and value stock quickly and automatically with the stock valuation calculator.
