Could you provide top picks from top rated securities analysts, say for each of the 10 S&P 500 sectors? To me, they are a type of guru. - George

How can i search by average ROE in the past 5 years like google finance?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but it seems gurufocus only calculates ROE on the most recent years.

hi Clara,

go to any stocks, and there is definition page, where you can click on these terms and see how they are defined.

NRI is Non-recurring items. PE before NRI reflects the real operating results better.

We will display all of them, working on it.
ReplyGuruchen - 3 years ago
Hi, Could you tell me what the difference between P/E and P/E before NRI is? What is NRI? Why does Guru use P/E before NRI? Thank you,
