Duff & Phelps has announced it will provide the data previously published in Morningstar's Ibbotson® SBBI® Valuation Yearbook in its new publication, the 2014 Valuation Handbook—Guide to Cost of Capital, which will include all of the critical year-end data previously available in the SBBI Valuation Yearbook. The new Valuation Handbook will be timed to provide users of SBBI valuation data with a source of data to complete year-end valuations without interruption.
