If Earnings Matter, Equity Valuation Looks Attractive
1 year ago

The 9.7% does seem like a sharp reversal lower, but the YOY comparison in 2019 back to 2018 is going to difficult to to the larger 2018 result, i.e., 'base effects'. Also, the 9ish percent growth rate is near where earnings estimates stood in December 2017, prior to the tax cut benefits. Certainly, if reinvestment translates to higher sales, earnings growth could be quite a bit higher than the 9.7% anticipated at this point in time.

Thanks for the comment Zev.
