Based on the empirical literature in accounting and finance, this paper suggests possible reasons for the inefficient valuation of intangibles, provides explanations for the existence of biases in analysts' earnings forecasts and proposes alternative ways for the improvement of the resource allocation mechanisms in the capital markets.
