    • Hello John,

      Thanks for the interesting series of writeups. I use this similar concept with various publicly listed securities and found similar results, particularly where there is consistency. But with WMT, I found the following.

      Average ROE = about 20%

      Average Retained earnings % = about 60%

      Growth should be about 12%

      But looking at book value growth, its about 6-8%. What gives?
