Capitalization of Earnings Method

A method of determining the value of the company by calculating the net present value of expected future profits and cash flows. The calculation takes last year's earnings and divides by the discount rate minus the growth rate adjusted for inflation. Although easy to calculate, this approach to valuation does not take into account any expected changes in earnings in future periods.
