Does EVA beat earnings and cash flow in Japan?
AbstractThe objective of this paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of Economic Value Added (EVA), a metric that is increasingly used in Japan as a measure of corporate value. EVA is compared with several other valuation measures including cash flow, operating income, and profit after tax from the viewpoint of both levels and changes. Also two different forms of EVA are examined by using the Weighted Cost of Capital (WACC) from the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) and the WACC from the Fama-French (1993) model. The results reveal that corporate market values in both levels and changes have stronger linkages with cash flow and other earnings measures than either form of EVA.
