|Abstract:||Valuation techniques are important to practitioners and academics. Although theoretically equity value equals the present value of expected dividends, in practice, higher-level metrics such as free cash flows, earnings, and book values are used for valuation. This paper helps us understand these metrics by: (1) providing a common and simple theoretical framework that shows how these alternative valuation metrics can be used instead of dividends; (2) using the common framework to provide the theoretical underpinnings of earnings-based valuation.|
