Forget head-and-shoulders, bear traps double bottoms, forget volume, and forget stochastics. When you’re looking at a company, the single-most-important number is return-on-equity. Return on Equity is how much profit a Company generates when compared to shareholder equity. What makes ROE so good as a tool to analyze a Company is because it doesn’t account for the price of the stock. It only measures the company’s performance not the stock’s performance.
