Could anyone point me in the direction of any papers or resources on creating a Equity Cash Flow model to value the S&P500? I'm curious if you would have to calculate FCFE for each company in the index or there is an easier way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a short cut you can try: FCFE = Dividends + Buybacks + Change in cash balance for the year If you can get the aggregate numbers for the S&P 500, you are home free.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Aswath is looking directly at cash flow; the accounting "shenanigans" shouldn't come through via the cash flow, unless they are purposefully manipulating cash, a difficult task.But, I would reformulate Aswath's formula as follows: FCFE = Dividends + Buybacks + Chg in Cash Balance  Equity Issuance Otherwise, raising equity and receiving proceeds from exercising executive stock options would create the illusions of free cash flow.. Aswath you agree?
