Valuation: Measuring and managing the value of companies, 6th ed.

This book contains a solid framework for valuation: analyzing historical performance, including reorganizing a company's financial statements to reflect economic rather than accounting performance; forecasting performance, with emphasis on not just the mechanics of forecasting but also how to think about a company's future economics; estimating the cost of capital with practical tips that aren't found in textbooks; interpreting the results of a valuation in light of a company's competitive situation; and linking a company's valuation multiples to the core drivers of its performance.
