Less vs Minus[edit]

Does less mean the same as minus here?


Liberty Media example needs to be dated[edit]

It's fine to use an individual company as an example, but a date should be provided to indicate that this statement was true at a certain point in time. It's not always going to be true. I added a cn.

Total Market Value being Confused with NAV?[edit]

I think of NAV as (Assets-Liabilities)/Shares. Why does the wiki definition not mention aportioning?

I would call that "NAV per share". I have never heard the term "Total Market Value", but it sounds like a different concept in any case, as it looks more like market capitalisation. Funds which trade on markets generally have a market capitalisation different from (usually lower than) their NAV. Westmorlandia (talk) 10:23, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

The article needs a clear and precise definition of Net Asset Value[edit]

I looked up the term because I wanted a precise crisp definition of it. I found none. I am not going to edit the article since I am not a specialist in the field but something like this is needed (though this definition is NAV / share) "Net Asset Value per share is defined as the reserve value, discounting cash flows at 10%, less net debt plus the cash proceeds from the exercise of options, incentive shares and deferred shares divided by the fully diluted shares outstanding."

(This is from a blog called "Canadian Value Investing" The reason I looked up the term was to see if this was the accepted meaning of NAV or just his own variation. I was disappointed by the article which was very imprecise just discussing the use of NAV without giving its definition) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dansynek (talkcontribs) 05:12, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

For anyone wondering about this, NAV has a completely different meaning for oil & gas companies, which is what the above comment references. That's not what this article is about. NAV in the oil & gas exploration and production (E&P) sector is not an accounting measure, but rather a subjective discounted cash flow (DCF)-based valuation of the income expected from its proved reserves and unproven resource in place. Because 10% is the consensus discount rate, it's often referred to as "PV-10"... at the risk of further confusing the issue, there is a related accounting measure also commonly called "PV-10" (or "SEC PV-10") which is defined as the standardized measure of cash flows, discounted at 10%, expected to come from a company's proven reserves. No value is given for unproven reserves. NAVs may be shown on a pre-or post-tax basis, SEC PV-10 must be shown post-tax (most companies will also provided a pre-tax figure alongside it). Unlike NAV, this is fully recognized by the SEC and included in the annual (but not quarterly) financial statements of every company with significant E&P assets; neither measure is covered by US GAAP.
The Canadian investing website likely focuses on E&P NAV because the sector is the most important industry in Canada. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:59, 8 May 2014
