  • J.C. Penney: Volatility Is Your Friend, Strong Buy On Any Pullback [View article]
    Chuck Norriss....I am only using my play money here...my 401K is buy and hold with bi-weekly dollar cost averaging...that;s the only way to win this game in my opinion...

    Just contribute each week or month ...and you will come out on top. If I'm not mkistaken...the S&P 500 has averaged a 10% gain per year for the last 20 years..or soething close to that

    Good luck to all

    I'm in Bank of America P/E ratio:20.33, and Staples P/E ratio: 13.43, as of end of last week..

    staying safe from what I learned...JCP was fun,,,may still be.

    I agree with Paul Wagner and may re enter if it pulls back to low $7....I understand I will probably miss a big run up after earnings...this is America and JCP is a long lasting Corporation with ties to old money. I would be amazed to see it go away...sorry if I sound like a conspiracy theorist.

    it allows an apples to apples comparison imo

    "Interest, which is largely a function of management's choice of financing, is ignored. Taxes are left out because they can vary widely depending on acquisitions and losses in prior years; this variation can distort net income. Finally, EBITDA removes the arbitrary and subjective judgments that can go into calculating depreciation and amortization, such as useful lives, residual values and various depreciation methods.

    By eliminating these items, EBITDA makes it easier to compare the financial health of various companies. It is also useful for evaluating firms with different capital structures, tax rates and depreciation policies. At the same time, EBITDA gives investors a sense of how much money a young or restructured company might generate before it has to hand over payments to creditors and the taxman."

    from what I've read, it is a measure of profit, and profit only.

    here's a more complete and clear def from investopedia

    ahh, yes, when you say to compare firms if in bankruptcy it makes total sense.

    "By definition, flat EBITDA burns $635mm of cash, but the Company has adequate liquidity to weather that level for about 2 years, maybe more. $1 billion of incremental EBITDA at 6x adds $20 to the value of the stock. If that is the direction people see EBITDA going, look out above."

    very helpfull--thank you!

    But I don't get why anyone would think it's a good measure when it doeas not include key expenses.

    I mean who cares if you have a high EBitda and 6 billion in debt noy included
