ISS EVA

Data Feed by ISS ESG

Added to Marketplace: February 19, 2021

Overview

The EVA team converts accounting profit to economic profit by reversing accounting distortions and measuring the dollar value profit after ALL costs, including the cost of giving shareholders a fair return on their invested capital. The EVA financials also offer a superior basis for calculating consistent valuation metrics. The EVA methodology enables the analysis of a company’s profitability, the decisions management teams make, and the overall value of a company.

The PRVit Score (Profitability, Risk, and Valuation) is our proprietary 26-factor model that compares the Profitability and Risk of a company’s operations to the Valuation the company trades for in the market. The model is factor agnostic: low-Profitability firms can be as attractive as high-Profitability firms depending on the Value being paid. The model generates alpha consistently in backtests across all regions and market caps. PRVit data is updated daily.

Along with single-company analysis, the EVA framework can also be used to provide a view on a fund’s exposure to EVA metrics relative to a benchmark to better assess sources of risk and alpha.
