Valuation Fun With Peg And P/E. “Who’s P/E Again?”

NOVEMBER 25, 2018. Go ahead. Jerk the O-ring on any Chatty money manager. What comes out? “Valuation.” That’s right. What’s it worth now, after the splintering market-wide mud slide.
Obsessions come in every form and some are healthy. We have two, or actually one, with two TRUE faces.
Maybe, possibly, this bull’s not dead. But it’s no longer moving. Wave goodbye.
Those glorious bag-ramming gains of a happy mile-wide market have popped. Think soap bubble. Gains will not tumble forth in twin-fisted flurries. Late has darkened to later. Gains will hide hard, in crumbs and invisible to many. Why?
Nine-year-old bulls do not rage. They amble.

Tracking down precise company-issued EPS and calculating the P/E takes time and ranks as tedious. Same goes for price performance. Yet are you ready to move forward when the most important metrics investors rely on come up in mismatching pairs? You don’t have to. Here’s how. Continue reading Felonious Numbers. Money Chops APB.

MONEY CHOPS. Fun with Peg and P/E. “Who’s P/E Again?”

JUNE 5, 2018. Rarely are we given such easy and powerful help. Yet there they are, the sisters of crap cutting–the Price-to-earnings multiple and the Price-to-earnings growth ratio. It’s a two-fer of the highest investing order. Too basic for you? Fact. Every team in the NFL employs QB coaches. Guess what they try to perfect? Right. Fundamentals. Even top-flight pros require regular help. The unteachable do not remain in the league very long. Continue reading MONEY CHOPS. Fun with Peg and P/E. “Who’s P/E Again?”
