The P/E Ratio: Getting the Most Bang for Your Investment Buck
I was shopping online at one of my favorite stores a few weeks ago when I came across a winter coat for my two-year-old son that I fell in love with. It was gray camouflage and insulated in every way, shape, and form that I could think of. Padded here, extra lining there - and a chin guard to boot. I loved everything about it - except for the price. It was a great jacket with a price tag that was, well, a bit over the top.
So, I waited. I checked back the following week. Same great winter coat, same high price. No go. Then, over the weekend, I checked again. Same great jacket - but this time, at a much better price. In fact, the price had been slashed by about 40 percent.
Now they had me. There isn't too much I love more than picking out toys and clothing for my son. I may be wearing ratty old, faded jeans circa 1997, but my kid, now that's a different story. And, as we're an outdoorsy family living in a part of the country where the arctic chill begins sometime around mid-November and can last well into April, it's not so far off the mark to spend a bit of the green stuff to make sure we've got ourselves covered - literally - all winter long.
Great Coat. Great Deal.
So, with a click of my mouse, I bought the coat. I not only got it at the sale price - but, with a special promotional code I'd received in the mail, I knocked another $10 off. Great coat. Great deal. And when I see my son wearing it this winter as he's sledding full-tilt down a run at our neighbor's house that's been tagged The Eliminator, you might see me cringe, but it won't have anything to do with the price of his coat.
I don't have to hit you over the head with the bottom line here. You get it. I got a great winter coat at a great deal. So, what does this have to do with you and your investment club? Everything.
