Valuation of Equity
Valuation is an art and not a science. It requires the combination of knowledge, experience and professional judgement in arriving at a fair valuation. While experience and judgement can only be cultivated through time, knowledge is acquired through formal training courses, reading on valuation and vitally of course being on the job. Practice is the best of all instructors.
The debate on valuation concepts and methodology is ages old and will continue for ages. Nevertheless certain influencing views have attempted to crystallize what is best practice. In India, such views originated from the Office of the Controller of Capital Issues (since abolished), The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and the Ministry of Finance and in recent times from the Securities and Exchange Board of India(SEBI).They attempt to bring down the subjective element in the valuation by prescribing the methodology, formulae and the rates to be followed in general and specific situations.
