Who's a major? A novel approach to peer group selection: Empirical evidence from oil and gas companies

No 2015/18, UiS Working Papers in Economics and Finance from University of Stavanger

Abstract: This study presents a novel approach to selecting comparable companies in equity valuation. While valuation multiples is probably the most common valuation method in practice, discounted cash flow and residual income valuation models are advocated by academics. A key aspect in valuation by multiples is peer group selection. In this paper we examine the usefulness of econometric techniques in peer-group selection for the largest companies in the international oil and gas sector. Using Chow tests we are able to identify firms with similar relationships between valuation multiples and relevant value drivers.
