Can anyone share a good method for calculating expected career dividends? This is to help when valuing a player.
I'm currently taking xDivs ('expected dividends' metric from IndexGain) and MB divs for this season (80% complete), extrapolating these numbers to 100%, and multiplying the number career years remaining assuming retirement at 33. Whatever this number is, I then calculate the % vs the current buy price.
This overly simplistic approach ignores div increases, changes in performance levels with age, number of games and competitions etc.
Just wondering if anyone has some tips?
