The Limitations of the DCF Approach
This module takes a closer look at the limitations of the DCF model and the assumptions used to make it work. Then it shows how to use sensitivity analysis to examine the sensitivity of the base case valuation to changes in the value driver, WACC and terminal value assumptions. Then it shows how to use scenario analysis and Monte Carlo simulations to further refine the valuation.This course replicates the content from lesson 6 from Business Valuation. A Core NYIF Course.
