Given a large variation of techniques and theories with regard to how value is measured, this article investigates the efficacy of alternative value measures. We consider a cross-section of simple and sophisticated alternative measures and focus on comparison metrics that are of primary interest for equity portfolio managers. Our results show that sophisticated valuation modelsalthough not universallyare superior to simple valuation models in many respects. Thus, we conclude that sophisticated models have interesting attributes and in general should be considered an additional if not primary perspective on equity valuation and portfolio management.
