Business Valuation With Aswath Damodaran- HongKong,

Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel, New Territories, Hong Kong Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel, New Territories, Hong Kong

  • About the event

    There are as many models for valuing stocks and businesses as there are analysts doing valuations. While we often talk about the differences across valuation models, we seldom talk about what they share in common. In this seminar, we hope to emphasize the shared foundations of valuation approaches and how to bridge differences among them. The first part of the seminar will cover the discounted cash flow valuation, and the estimation issues that come up when estimating discount rates, cash flows and expected growth. In addition, it will look at value enhancement through the prism of discounted cash flow models. The second part of the seminar will focus on what we term the loose ends in valuation and follow up by looking at “difficult – to – value” companies across the spectrum (life cycle, sectors). The third part of the seminar will examine relative valuation, i.e., the valuation of assets/businesses by looking at how similar assets/businesses are priced by the market

His research interests lie in valuation, portfolio management and applied corporate finance. He has published in the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics and the Review of Financial Studies.

    He has written four books on valuation (Damodaran on Valuation, Investment Valuation, The Dark Side of Valuation, The Little Book of Valuation), and two on corporate finance (Corporate Finance: Theory and Practice, Applied Corporate Finance: A User’s Manual). He has co – edited a book on investment management with Peter Bernstein (Investment Management), has a book on investment philosophies (Investment Philosophies) and one on “can’t miss” investment strategies, titled Investment Fables. He also has a book on the relationship between risk and value, Strategic Risk Taking, which takes a big picture view of how risk management affects value. Aswath was a visiting lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1984 to 1986, where he received the Earl Cheit Outstanding Teaching Award in 1985.
