    Equity growth

    Hi everyone!

    I am researching this stock, partially based on Buffetology for a long term purchase.

    Where is the extra equity coming from? For example, in '94 (adjusted) there was $6.30 equity/share. In '95 they earned and retained $0.68/share. Yet, in '95 they had $8.42 in equity. Where is it coming from??

    Thanks!

    • please let us know your findings.
      i have owned srv for about 6 months.
      its a recession proof industry, the company does a good job with its "cluster" idea to control cost. about 85 percent of industry is mom and pop .
      growth and earnings around 22 percent.

      roe about 15 percent, which is one of buffetts big items.
      it does have a fair amount of debt.

      i am also reading buffettology but started after i had bought the stock.
      interested to see what you find.
