Valuations: Businesses, Securities, and Real Estate

This course covers valuations ranging from businesses, bonds, preferred stock and common stock to real estate. Business valuation is essentially a present value concept that involves estimating future cash flows of a business and discounting them at a required rate of return.  The value of a bond is essentially the present value of all future interest and principal payments.  Stock price may be expressed as a function of the expected future dividends and a rate of return required by investors.  The Gordon’s valuation model reflects this process.  Real estate valuation involved several rule-of-thumb valuation methods.
