      I remember reading that article and compared MDR to other EPCI companies. I chose MDR. I did not record the numbers at the time, but here are the current numbers in order of MDR, FLR, KBR, FWLT. These were the best known competitors when I worked in the arena for 30+ years.

      PM% 4.51, 2.29, 2.55, 4.44
      OM% 8.5, 3.88, 4.76, 5.57
      ROE 9.86, 20.34, 10.11, 20.35
      PEG .42, 1.22, 1.37, .63

      As you can see, MDR's PM and OM exceed the other companies. They are behind in ROE, true. However, looking at the next five year projected growth % per annum, in the same order:

      27.9, 11.85, 7.57, 20

      I like the .42 PEG and the 27.9% estimated growth in MDR.

    • are you referring to business as a whole?
