Inaganti6 but market value can be an exaggeration during times of irrational exuberance ....these gray area questions
lighty0770 Agreed with inaganti6. Generally in valuation we would assume going concern and therefore would not consider a liquidation value as an approach to valuation as that would directly contradict the income and market approaches.
