Why would one stock sell for more than another, although the latter's earnings per share is higher? I cite Control Data and Sperry Rand. Control Data costs more, but Sperry Rand earns more. A. Your question is a very good one and illustrates a very fundamental fact of life in the stock market. In the long run, the single most important factor determining the price of a slock is its earning power - the earnings' per share generated by the corporation. Quite commonJy, the stock of an industrial company will sell at 10 to 15 times earnings. That is, a stock earning $5 per share per year will sell at $50 to $75 a share. Shares of a company with a record of growing faster than others, or seeming to have prospects of doing so, may sell at an even higher price/earnings ratio. When enthusiasm for the stock subsides, the number of people willing to pay high price/- eiarninigs ratios shrinks ami the price of such a stock falls rapidly. - iRiigih.1 now Control Data is selling a,t around $100 a share while its earnings are only about $1 per share. On the other hand, Sperry Rand is selling at around $36 and lias earnings of $1.75 per share. Thus it secmis that Sperry Rand is the bettor buy. Both companies have had problems in the recent past, but both seem to have overcome these and appear headed for belter clays. It.': would appear:that the.- people who arc buying Control Data arc basing their decisions more on what they hope the future will produce, while Sperry Rand buyers nre basing their price more on present earnings. A numbed* of security analysts, however, expect both companies to improve earnings by about the same amount in the coming year. Q. In a recent column you recommended buying shares in growing companies that are putting a good slice of their profits back into new plant equipment and inventory. How can one tell which companies these are? A. First, to find a rapidly growing company, you can check the Standard & Poor's investment listings at a broker's office or your library. By skihvming through these you can find firms whose sales have increased 75 per cent or more in the last five years. These will definitely be nap- idly growing companies. Once you have found them, chock their earnings per share for the same years. If earnings have increased at about the same percentage a.s sales, you have found a company with a good earnings record. It is an easy step to next determine what percentage of earnings is being paid out in dividends. Also, the Standard & Poor'* sheet, or other reporting ser- vies, will give information about the new capital investments made by the corporation each year, so you can tell if the firm is building new plants and adding to its equipment, or just piling up money. A convenient way of studying an individual company is outlined in NAIC's Investment Club Manual, available by mail for $3.00. 0- MEDAL — A/lc Kenneth L. Dunlap, son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard 0. Dunlap of New Virginia, was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal recently. Airman Dunlap was decorated for meritorious service as an administrative specialist while on duty in Thailand.

Prom the time men first ventured to sea, harbors have spelled shelter, a haven—safety for the sailor and his craft. Many a mariner's life has been spared, in times of terrific storm, when by good fortune his vessel was able to reach port. The Church might well be compared to a harbor, for when the storms of life rock the very .foundation of a man's or woman's life through grief,, ill health.or m,entajl tprture the; C^urqh^an "and will, serve as a harbor—a h'aven. It will aid. a life to regain its even keel^' to meet and weather all rough storms. Advance Publishing Co.
