Unfortunately, sizing up management is also one of the most complex tasks that analysts -and investors -have to face.

A company's rate of return on equity capital may be a significant g aide to its stock's possible future. Example: the rate of return for one food company improved from 5.3 in 1957 to 12.4 in 1966. The price of the company's stock soared by over 500 percent. 19 134 133 92 95 92 95 134 2 92 95 89 1 The PIE ratio of any stock is only meaningful when you compare it with the PIE ratios of other stocks in the same industry, and with its PIE ratio in previous years. If other stocks in the same industry as yours have a higher average PI E ratio (30 to 1, for instance), or if your stock's PI E ratio has suddenly had a drastic rise or fall, there may be something about your company that requires further investigation. One possibility: the projected earnings-per-share (those anticipated for the current year, or even next year) may be lower than those in the company's latest report-and well-informed investors may be selling the stock. For our Research Department's earnings forecasts on any of more than 2,000 companies, stop by your nearest Merrill Lynch office. News and Rumors Plain or fancy, fact or fantasy? It takes a bold man to say with certainty whether the market is going up or down. (Only your barber knows for sure.) Merrill Lynch does not know for certain what the market will do. We spend millions of dollars analyzing the news, but the market makes up its own mindevery minute, every hour, every day. Unfortunately the market reacts not only to news, but to rumors. Rumors about a company's earnings, its management, its newest product. But rumors are rarely, if ever, a good basis for making investment decisions. Aloe Creme Labs 7 Amer. Bankers Life Ass.

Don't let Wall Street terms like "leverage" bother you. (If you've ever jacked up a car in anger, you know what leverage means.) In the market, a stock is called "high-leveraged" if the company is obligated to pay a large amount of bond interest (andor preferred dividends) in relation to earnings. Example: if a company earns $600,000, and must pay bond interest of $500,000, it has just $100,000 available for dividends to stockholders (and for taxes). If the company has a good year, and earnings increase to $700,000, it still only owes $500,000 in bond interest, but has $200,000 available for dividends and taxes. Double the amount that was available before. If the company has a poor year, and earnings drop to $500,000, it still owes $500,-000 in bond interest. There's nciingi7(leftfordividends. With a high-leveraged company, even a small rise or fall in pre-tax earnings may make a dramatic difference to the price of the stock. Up or down. Some speculators have made fortunes in high-leveraged stocks. Other speculators have lost fortunes. Moral: don't play around with high-leveraged stocks-unless you can afford to lose as well as gain. Price-Earnings Ratio In line? Above the line? Or somewhere down the line? To get the "P E ratio" for the stock that interests you, check the price in your newspaper, and the annual earnings-per-share in the company's regular financial reports. Example: your stock is selling at $30, and annual earnings are $2 per share. Price-earnings ratio: IS tol.
