Why doesn't the Buy Up To price, on the company sorts, match the one shown on the Stock Study and write up?
The price on the Stock Study is calculated slightly differently than in the company sorts, due to the starting point of the growth rate projection. On the company sorts, the 5-year EPS figures are calculated by using a 1-year estimate of EPS, and then applying 4 years of the projected growth rate.
On the SSG, the 5-year EPS is set by using the starting point on the SSG, and applying 5 years of EPS growth.
The slightly different EPS means that the high and buy up to prices will be slightly different.
If there is ever a question about which price to use, the analyst's recommendations in the News section should be given more weight than the purely mathematical calculations driving the buy up to and overvalued at prices in the Company Sort pages.
