### Abnormal Earnings Valuation Model

### What is the ‘Abnormal Earnings Valuation Model’

The abnormal earnings valuation model is a method for determining a company’s worth that is based on book value and earnings. Also known as the residual income model, it looks at whether management’s decisions cause a company to perform better or worse than anticipated. The model says that investors should pay more than book value if earnings are higher than expected and less than book value if earnings are lower than expected

### Explaining ‘Abnormal Earnings Valuation Model’

There are numerous other methods for valuing companies, including P/E ratio, price-to-book value ratio, return on equity, return on capital employed and discounted cash flow. Investors and analysts should not place too much emphasis on any one of these (or a number of other) measures of value because no single method can provide a complete picture of a company’s financial performance.
