The New Industry Standard in Business Valuation Reference Materials – with Quarterly PDF Updates
2017 Valuation Handbook – U.S. Guide to Cost of Capital
provides the key annual valuation data previously published in (i) the now discontinued Morningstar/Ibbotson SBBI Valuation Yearbook
(discontinued in 2013), and (ii) the Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report Study (no longer published as a stand-alone publication).
The size premia data previously published in the SBBI Valuation Yearbook
is referred to as the "CRSP Deciles Size Premia" exhibits in the new 2017 Valuation Handbook – U.S. Guide to Cost of Capital
, while the size and risk premia data published in the Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report Study has been published annually since 1996 and, like the former SBBI Valuation Yearbook
, provides data and methodology that can be used to develop cost of equity capital estimates using (i) the build-up method and (ii) the capital asset pricing model (CAPM).
The 2017 Valuation Handbook – U.S. Guide to Cost of Capital
includes data through December 31, 2016, and is intended to be used for 2017 valuation dates.
