What is relative valuation?
In relative valuation, the value of an asset is compared to the valuesassessed by the market for similar or comparable assets.
To do relative valuation then,
we need to identify comparable assets and obtain market values for theseassetsconvert these market values into standardized values, since the absoluteprices cannot be compared This process of standardizing creates pricemultiples.compare the standardized value or multiple for the asset being analyzed tothe standardized values for comparable asset, controlling for anydifferences between the firms that might affect the multiple, to judgewhether the asset is under or over valued
