Hi Paul - of course there's nothing forcing us to adhere to any standardised equity valuation methods. The very fact that we have markets with such divergent views on asset values proves that people will find any valuation they want to arrive at, never mind how!Even among those claiming to use such methods, there's usually enough divergence to drive a Mack truck through it, given the inherent flexibility in inputs and interpretations.'In fact the whole beta theory is such a joke that a competing web site to the Fool is aptly named "seeking alpha". 'The contents of which are equally a joke, more often than not? :) What *beta theory* are you referring to anyway - and why exactly is it *such a joke*?Don't know about you, but if I hadn't factored beta (/volatility/ risk) into my portfolio decisions, I know I wouldn't have survived the global roller coaster rides I've been on.----------------------Global Gains Home Fool
