ValuingÂ shares in a business usuallyÂ focusÂ on estimating theÂ equityÂ in the whole business as a whole by focusing on tried and tested accounting techniques.Â It is fair to say that the techniques be it based on a market multiple or net asset approach is more of an art rather than a science.
Any valuationÂ must contain various assumptions and estimates and it is therefore useful to consider them all.Â In particular the four techniques are generally considered to beÂ as follows
1. Market multiple.
2. Net Asset approach.
3. The discounted cash flow approach and finally…
4.Â The dividend yield.Â
