John J. Stockdale, ASA, CPA/ABV, CFF


The studies and tools that measure volatility provide appraisers with powerful information to be used in determining and applying a discount for lack of marketability (DLOM). Yet, of the models available, each has strengths and weaknesses that make its application potentially dangerous, depending on the target business, valuation assignment, or other considerations. In this webinar, expert John J. Stockdale reviews, tests, and interprets the outcomes of these models to provide appraisers with a better understanding of how, when, and why to apply each. Through statistical analysis and basic tests of comparison, Stockdale will show that, while each model has useful benefits, not all are always appropriate.
