Growth is not free for most companies. It costs something. The cost of growth valuation model takes into account return on invested capital when valuing stocks. Most companies have to retain earnings in order to grow.
Assets are only as valuable as the earnings they create. You can’t take credit for both book value (assets) and earnings power in the same valuation on a stock. It’s a problem of double counting that leads to overvaluation.
