Intrinsic formula on INDIAN STOCKS (NSE/BSE)

Hi guys,

I was calculating the intrinsic value for an Indian stock (KPIT Industries) when I realized that the last row on the intrinsic calculator page ( talks about the (Discount Rate) 10 year federal note (%) with a link to the US treasury website, which is great, but what do I do about Indian stocks?

I'm terribly confused about this. I've taken the assumption that I can get by with the rate on an Indian government bond

I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. Can someone help?

Also, for the Graham formula, which is:

Here Y represents the AAA corporate bond rate. What do I do for Indian stocks?

Thanks in advance,

@Stig, Preston: Before I finish, I just wanted to thank you guys for the fantastic work you're doing. I came across your vids on youtube and have been hooked since. I listen to your podcast all the time and have just finished Course 1 of the Warren Buffet Value Investing Course. I'm so impressed by how simple and easy you've made everything for me that I just ordered ALL your books from Amazon and half of the books you suggested on Buffets Books. Thanks and keep up the great work!


  • Hi there Faiz,

    Welcome to the site.

    In order to get the intrinsic value calculator to work for Indian stocks simply input all monetary figures in Indian Rupees and use the Indian 10yr Government bond for the discount rate.

    For the Graham formula you would use the average Indian AAA corporate bond rate

    I hope this helps and if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.


  • Thank you so much for your prompt reply, Anaximander!

    Small question, can I use the rate for "Y" in Graham's formula from this link:

    Please do let me know. Thanks.
