Note the calculations below are per share.

See our documentation to learn about this calculation.

TSX:XFN Value of Excess Returns
Calculation Result
Excess Returns = (Stable Return on equity – Cost of equity) (Book Value of Equity per share)
= (13.5% – 5.98%) * CA$36.39)
CA$2.74
Terminal Value of Excess Returns = Excess Returns / (Cost of Equity - Expected Growth Rate)
= CA$2.74 / (5.98% - 1.44%)
CA$60.36
Value of Equity = Book Value per share + Terminal Value of Excess Returns
= CA$36.39 + CA$60.36
CA$96.76
TSX:XFN Discount to Share Price
Calculation Result
