Automobile dealers and full-service restaurants are the industries respondents most want to have analyzed for causal factors and their elasticities, according to a survey carried out by BVWire. This analysis helps develop empirical support for isolating the passive component of a firm’s appreciation in value.

During a recent BVR webinar on active and passive appreciation in a divorce context, Professor Ashok Abbott (West Virginia University) presented an updated version of his method for identifying significant economic environmental factors and their relative contribution to growth in revenues. He demonstrated the method by doing an analysis of several industries. He offered to perform additional analyses based on a survey of want-to-see industries. Rounding out the Top 10 industries are: building materials and supplies dealers; limited-service restaurants; drinking places (alcoholic beverages); supermarkets and other grocery (except convenience) stores; furniture stores; computer and software stores; beer, wine, and liquor stores; and gasoline stations.

Dr. Abbott will now address the industries in the order of preference—stay tuned for the results!
