A free version of the newsletter, without the PE tables and many other important features, can be obtained with a sign-up form on our website (at the bottom of the Tracker page....yes, it needs a clearer link....work in progress).
Results of the first week's analysis show that the highest PE of the companies we track is Info Communication (the parent company of Paper Communication Exhibitions) at 137.3.

Of the 23 stocks we track, 9 have no real PE as they are loss-making.

“We recorded 30-percent growth in 2006,” Woodward said. “It seems impossible to continue that in '07. If there is any slowdown, it's probably more of a maturing process. In other words, there might be 8- or 9-percent growth instead of 30 (percent).”
“If South China is going to get some slowdown in manufacturing because of a slowdown in orders from the U.S., then there could be something latent to care about,” Duck said.
