Here are some numbers of a company I won’t name yet.
Earnings per share last 8 quarters
Total of last 4 quarters earnings is $ 2.66
The 4 quarters before are:
Total of the previous 4 quarters earnings was $3.51
The share price on Friday 8/7/15 closed at $67.62
Increase/decrease in earnings year over year is $-.85
The growth rate is -75.78%
If the earning drop year over year, is it correct the growth rate is negative?
And, if so, what would the 1YPEG be? Would it be -.33?
There is a reason why the earnings dropped like they did. It was from a large acquisition. Knowing this, I guess it makes it harder to evaluate the company as a potential investment until you know how the new acquisition adapts into the company.
Please don’t guess at what company this is. I will tell you later in the week.
