PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Business Valuation Resources (BVR) has partnered with Duff & Phelps to offer the 2014 Valuation Handbook – Industry Cost of Capital, a must-have publication that enables robust benchmarking analysis when developing industry cost of capital estimates.
Determining the appropriate cost of capital or discount rate can be one of the most challenging aspects of any valuation analysis, particularly in volatile markets or during periods of economic uncertainty. With data through March 2014, the Valuation Handbook – Industry Cost of Capital provides much of the same rigorous industry-level analysis previously published in the green-cover Morningstar/Ibbotson Cost of Capital Yearbook, as well as additional methods to calculate cost of equity capital and extra statistics. In addition, optional PDF quarterly updates are available for an additional fee.
"The Valuation Handbook - Industry Cost of Capital is the gold standard for industry-level analysis," said Doug Twitchell, publisher at BVR. "Purchasers can use the data in this must-have resource to support and augment their own analysis of the industry in which their subject business, business ownership interest, security, or intangible asset resides. And, with the optional PDF quarterly updates, purchasers will have the most current data throughout the year."
Valuation Handbook – Industry Cost of Capital highlights include:
- Cost of capital estimates – 8 cost of equity estimates, equity capital, debt capital, and WACC – for over 200 U.S. industries including large cap, midcap, low cap, and microcap stocks
- Detailed statistics include sales, market cap, capital structure, beta estimates, valuation multiples, financial and profitability ratios, equity returns, aggregate forward looking EPS growth rates and more
- Dedicated analysis of off-balance sheet debt (specifically, operating leases and unfunded pension liabilities) to ascertain true risk
- Optional quarterly updates (June, September, and December) – delivered via PDF for an additional fee
