The Importance of Earnings Projections, Stock Life Cycle, and More
Oct 30, 2015

We recently got a rather interesting mail from a well-meaning subscriber. He wanted to know the EPS (earnings per share) estimates for a few companies he had in his portfolio. These were of course Equitymaster recommendations.

While we would have readily obliged, we ran into a problem. Almost all the stocks on the gentleman's list were either recommended through ValuePro or Microcap Millionaires. As subscribers to these services would know, we don't make forward projections in either. No stock recommended through these services comes with its future estimates mentioned in the report.

Treatment differential

It is not that we don't believe in projections. As a matter of fact, we regularly make projections for stocks recommended through our other services like StockSelect, Hidden Treasure, and The India Letter.
