This study analyzes the market, cost, and income valuation methods used in the healthcare industry. There are problems with the current valuation methods, especially the valuation of health care assets used in the cost approach, the exclusion of demographics, which would aid in the market valuation approach, and the difficulty of projecting revenues when smaller companies merge with larger public healthcare organizations in the income approach. Two hundred and thirty-five individual hospitals in the states of Florida and Colorado along with 14 public hospital corporations spanning the country were examined to produce the results of the study. The results of the regression analysis show that demographics play a large role in a hospital's potential earnings base. This study provides information that will help analysts develop a more complete and accurate valuation of healthcare companies.
In these uncertain economic times, investors are looking for assets that can hedge against risk in other investments. Diamonds are a safe investment and there is a diamond for every investor. To date, very few studies offer information about diamond pricing or diamond pricing analysis. This paper examines whether specific diamond characteristics outperform or underperform the average diamond for a given investment period. The data examined here include prices for two months of the year for 24 years. Using a random effects generalized least squares model, this paper finds that for a ten year investment period, large round diamonds with low colors and clarities perform very well, while high quality 1.00 carat diamonds perform poorly over a ten year investment window. The Study’s results inform current, and future diamond investor’s decisions.
