Hi my assignment is due like TODAY.
I need three simple criterion to evaluate whether it is good to buy shares in a company. So far I have the profability of shares, the potential for a share to be bluechip but I am lacking a third.
I'm stuck because I have already evaluated the varying stock prices twice in two different ways, is there anything else I can do? I also looked at the volatility of the market in bluechip criterion
HELP! What else can I use?

Here are some criteria I consider.
Has the company steadily increased its sales and EPS?
Is the PE in a reasonable range?
What kind of future does this company have?

Okay. Thankyou. Quick question though, what are the EPS and PE?

Oh, my! You need to learn these abbreviations if you're taking an econ class and studying the stock market.
EPS = earnings per share
PE = price earnings ratio. That's the price divided by the earnings. For instance, a PE of 18 means that stock purchasers are paying 18 times the earnings for a share of that stock.

Okay I have the EPS as earnings per share but is PE price earning ratio or private equity?

Okay, thankyou for all your help! I think I'll use the PE
