fall

-Uses meaningful patterns or trends in the stock price that
may signal future movements in price

-Dividend Yields
-PEG Ratio
-Dividend Yields
-Institutional Ownership
-Earnings Yield/Annual Growth
Aspects of a Stock: P/E Ratio

-Defined as

     Dividend Yields

 - It is the dividend paid paid - If a company has a high P/E
 last year over the current      ratio, then they pay little in
 share price.                    dividends.
 - Reciprocal of the
 Price/Dividend ratio.
 - If the stock paid out 5$ last
 year and current price is 50$
 dollars, what percent is the
 dividend yield?
Earnings Yield
- Earnings yield is the          The earnings yield can be
quotient of earnings per         used to compare the earnings
share divided by the share       of a stock, sector or the

easy comparison to going
bond rates.

rate of growth from               situation, the rates will decline
investments.                      at some time.
- So, generally the greater the   Non- competitive- 1 year
growth, the better!               Solid company - 5 years
- However, high growth rates      Company with high barriers of
are impossible to maintain        entry - 10 years
indefinitely.                     *approximations
Institutional Ownership

How much are institutions like
mutual funds, pension funds,
and hedge funds pouring into
certain stocks?

Pro: Can influence the
demand and therefore price
of a stock by "marketing"

Con: Such big institutions,
when selling, can lead to
excessive supply of stock
