AuthorTopic: Which cost of equity method is practically better?
@2016-09-04 04:00:32
If in an ideal scenario, a person, who is calculating the cost of equity, has all the information about dividends, growth, risk premiums, systematic risk. He can go with any of the 3 different ways (3 included in the level 1 curriculum) of calculating the cost of equity (Dividend discount method, CAPM, Bond Yield and Risk Premium). What should be his best choice?

I understand that all the methods have their own assumptions. I just want to know which of these options the best in real life scenarios is. What methods do analysts prefer? Which one presents the most realistic result?
