Totally agreed with Kcchongz. Using fundamental analysis to look for good stocks works for me too.

At the end of the day, big money is made by buying small cap stocks with low PE and gets re rated because of increasing quarterly profits.

Ratios hardly help in this respect.....but insider information and deep understanding of the company and its environment will do the trick.

Even simple rations have too many factors behind it to use to predict the future.

Thanks for the education.
This web site is incomplete without you.

But I must say every ratio starts from the audited accounts....and you already know what they can do to audited accounts.

Other gurus put emphasis on other non quantifiable things such as.....business model, management, ....shareholder strengths, relationships, concept stocks. Etc etc....and this year earnings, latest q earnings. PE ratio.>

I also an accountant so I appreciate people like you who promotes financial ratios.
It is not my intention to be anti Chong....the purpose of my comment is to say ratios is only part of the story....it is historical, it can be manipulated, and limited predictive power in relation to share price which we are all in it for.

I like to look at a share as consisting of 3 components...the business model, the management and the numbers. Ratios do assist in answering specific questions in relation to the 3 factors above....And only that. Ratios help to answer very specific and very limited questions. Ratios also help in selecting the best from a similar industry and similar operating environment by doing some comparisons within the same industry.
Comparing Ebita yield eleminates the effects of borrowings and depreciation and focuses on the enterprise value of companies in the same industry.
Earnings yield as defined by you as Ebita divided by market cap plus borrowings introduces share price into the equation which is good and gives additional information
so, you see, I am not anti Chong.
Ratio is a financial tool, it is just a tool.
But the best buys are those companies with a good business model, good management and good figures. and you can buy it at a decent price....or in the words of KYY, profits increasing Q by Q and still below PE 10.

I will focus less on the ratios and more on valuations.
eg, some of your previous writings about valuations, appropriate PEs, growth, discounting rates, terminal values, what PE for what growth rates...these are very illuminating.

a simple rule of thumb...a 25% growth rate company can easily justify 25X PE once we are comfortable with the projections.
