    You Cant realy on Yahoo numbers ie PE EPS DIVs


    I notice YAHOO is very inconsistent and can loose you a lot of money..because they have an odd way of stating EPS,DIV and PE ratios. On some stocks they report full 4 quarter earnings and on some they only report the last quarter, as in the case of FE. Yahoo also totally screws the earnings numbers as in the case of Verizon... make sure you check your broker website or the Company web page to get the accurate numbers...FEs Earnings' last year and this year easily carry the dividend yet a reported by yahoo 74cents this quarter looks misleading and low...where as WIN and CTL earnings are reported for the entire year VZ and FE only one quarter...also dividends are projected back as if they existed for 4 quarters when some divs were cut skipped or just raised, and this is especially misleading with foreign stocks that don't pay quarterly and often can go up or down a buck from one half to the other

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
