Alot of messages talk about earning. Do you look at the projected earnings growth percent for the following months or what. What , in particular , do you look for when determining whether to buy and hold the stock. Some people say never buy a stock with a P/e over 18, yet JBL is way over that and doing great. Please explain. I look for history, broker recommendations, Financial growth for the past 3 yrs., and good talk of coming things.Anything else I should look for? Am I on the right track? Thanks for answering my questions, I appreciate it.
