Real Asset Valuation Based on Spot Prices: Can We Forget About Market Fundamentals?

Corinne Chaton, Laure Durand-Viel Real assets are usually valued by assuming a liquid spot market with competitive traders who buy or sell until arbitrage opportunities are exhausted; the value of a real asset is computed as the stream of profits resulting from such transactions. This method ignores market fundamentals by assuming that all the relevant information is included in the spot price. This paper analyses the bias resulting from such an approach when the market is imperfectly competitive. Read more [...]

Long-Term Electricity Contract Valuation Using Rollover Hedging

René Aïd, François Barjon, Christine Vialas This paper proposes a market-based method to provide a selling price for long-term contract on electricity market.

For this purpose, we consider different market structures (private monopoly, planner that maximizes the social welfare, dyopoly) and two types of consumers (consumers depending on weather and the other ones). The demand specification is innovative and takes into account an incompressible Read more [...]

Strategic Capacity Investment under Holdup Threats: the Role of Contract Length and Width

Laure Durand-Viel Bertrand Villeneuve This article analyzes the impact of incomplete contracts’ length on investment in a bilateral relationship. The seller has the power to set the contract terms whereas the buyer decides on the investment level, which acts as a cap on future demand. Two-part tariffs succeed at implementing the optimal investment and consumption even if commitment is limited, and the contract’s duration is irrelevant. Interestingly, this efficient solution is rendered possible Read more [...]
