This book provides the same type of rigorous industry-level analysis previously published in the green-cover Morningstar/Ibbotson Cost of Capital Yearbook. Noteworthy in this book is (1) the inclusion of additional methods to calculate industry-level cost of equity capital and other statistics, which enables a more robust benchmarking analysis when developing industry cost of capital estimates, and (2) new analysis of the impact of “off-balance-sheet” debt (specifically, capitalized operating leases and unfunded pension liabilities) on capital structure.
The book includes cost of capital estimates (i.e., equity capital, debt capital, and WACC) for over 200 U.S. industries and size groupings (i.e., large-, mid-, low-, and microcapitalization companies), plus a host of detailed statistics that can be used for benchmarking purposes. It contains data which the valuation analyst will find useful in benchmarking, augmenting, and supporting his or her own custom analysis of the industry in which a subject business, business ownership interest, security, or intangible asset resides.
