about

Tech Stock Valuationextends the R&D literature by providing detailed direct evidence on the market value implications of inventive and innovative output. Specifically, the text demonstrates that stock-price effects of patent output are most pronounced in the case of high-quality patents, where patent quality is measured by scientific merit.

Scientific measures of patent quality give students a valuable new tool that can be used to measure R&D program effectiveness. At the same time, it gives investors a new tool to help them assess the value of hard-to-measure intangible assets.

The book is an ideal resource for professionals working in finance and accounting; investment professionals and industry analysts who work for companies that engage in research and development; MBA students; economists working in industrial organizations, microeconomics, and contract theory.



  • Provides detailed direct evidence on the market value implications of inventive and innovative output

Editorial Reviews

"The impact of the highly variable capital market conditions--such as we saw during the late 1960s, the mid 1980s, and the late 1990s--on the evolution of high-technology industries remains little understood, but is critically important to the future growth of the U.S. economy. [This book] takes an initial look at some of these very important but complex issues." --Josh Lerner, Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Investment Banking, Harvard Business School, Boston, MA, USA
