This distinction is central to understanding and interpreting non-zero residual income. In general, this understanding helps in the implementation of the residual income valuation model (see, for example, Penman (2000)) and, in particular, it matters in the interpretation of observed non-zero residual income in empirical research (for example, Biddle et al. (2001)). Since Biddle et al. (2001) do not distinguish between the two components of residual income in their empirical analyses, it is not possible to determine whether their observed relations reﬂect the effects of accounting rules or positive NPV opportunities.
