Hooke updates Security Analysis and Business Valuation on Wall Street

BVWireIssue #92-1
May 5, 2010

The new edition of Jeffrey Hooke’s (Hooke Associates and FOCUS, LLC) Security Analysis and Business Valuation on Wall Street contains fresh insights and updates on the fundamentals of security analysis and business valuation, new case study examples, and four new chapters.

Among other reasons, Hooke points out why experts should read this practitioner-oriented book: "Two market crashes -- and the attendant fallout -- suggest that business appraisers consider the use of higher discount rates, the need for recessions in many forecasts, and the inclusion of political risk in certain US business evaluations.""The validity of each methodology -- be it guideline companies or discounted cash flow, to give two examples -- has to be cross checked against its counterparts now more than ever, or the appraiser can get false readings."
