Year-end 2019 data are now available in BVR’s
Cost of Capital Professional. The new update provides business valuers with current cost of equity,
cost of debt, and WACC numbers, including:
- risk-free rates;
- industry risk premia;
- equity risk premia;
- betas for CAPM calculations; and
- size premia.
CCPro gives analysts the flexibility to choose the start year for
historical return data based on which business cycle best offers a
reasonable basis to make estimates of expected future returns. In addition,
CCPro will be adding a small and micro-stock size premia split during the 2nd quarter to provide better support for risk analyses when
valuing very small businesses.
