BBJ Reports on Valuation Trends

In late August, Porter White and Company (PWCo) published “What’s it Worth, Q1 2016,” a quarterly valuation review that explores recent valuation trends in the public and private markets.

Seale’s analysis lead him to the following conclusion regarding the state’s economy – “the outlook may not be as gloomy as people may think.”
