The discussion section of the research paper evaluates the application of the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) approach in valuing healthcare companies. The DCF approach is suitable for capturing the long-term projects and regulatory uncertainties in the healthcare industry. It accurately reflects the risks and uncertainties faced by healthcare companies. However, accurately forecasting future cash flows is challenging due to rapidly changing market conditions and evolving technologies. The reliance on assumptions and inputs in the DCF model can significantly impact valuation outcomes. The DCF approach assumes risk-free cash flows, which may not reflect the inherent risks in the healthcare industry. Insights from other studies support the discussion’s conclusions. Overall, the discussion provides a balanced assessment of the strengths and limitations of the DCF approach in valuing healthcare companies.
