Term of the Week: Terminal Value
This week's term comes to us from Janine who hit us up on Instagram. Jbird suggests 'terminal value' this week, and we like that term because in today's environment of slowing earnings growth, terminal value is a smart way of assessing the future value of a company—any company.
According to Investopedia, terminal value is the value of an asset, business, or project beyond the forecasted period when future cash flows can be estimated. Terminal value assumes a business will grow at a set growth rate forever after the forecast period. Terminal value often comprises a large percentage of the total assessed value.
Thanks Janine for helping make us a little smarter this week!
