"Accounting for Value"

Faculty Development Seminar

Abstract   Accounting for Value teaches investors and analysts how to handle accounting in evaluating equity investments.  The book’s novel approach shows that valuation and accounting are much the same: valuation is actually a matter of accounting for value.  Accounting for value recasts “value” versus “growth” investing and explains such curiosities as why earnings-to-price and book-to-price ratios predict stock returns. http://cup.columbia.edu/book/978-0-231-15118-4/accounting-for-value/reviews
