The Duff & Phelps 2017 Valuation Handbook – U.S. Industry Cost of Capital is now available for pre-order (available June). This resource contains the same type of industry-level analysis previously published in the green-cover Morningstar/Ibbotson Cost of Capital Yearbook, now discontinued. This edition provides up to eight cost of equity capital and weighted average cost of capital (WACC) estimates for each of the U.S. industries covered in the book, plus capital structure, valuation (trading) multiples, sales, market capitalization, capital structure, several levered and unlevered beta estimates (e.g., ordinary-least squares (OLS) beta, sum beta, downside beta, etc.), financial and profitability ratios, equity returns, aggregate forward-looking earnings-per-share (EPS) growth rates, and more. The data in this edition is through March.
