As an aside, the more a firm is growing the more important the ROE.
A growing firm with an uninteresting ROE is worth nothing extra
 due to its growth rate, and even a slowly growing high ROE 
firm is potentially worth a lot.
The PEG ratio is misleading, as it conflates growth with
 worthwhile growth.
Rather than growth/PE it should be something more like 
(1+ growth rate above inflation times amount by which ROE
 exceeds the long run median) times
(the amount by which the cyclically adjusted earnings yield
 exceeds Siegel's constant of 6.5%).

As a fun exercise, try this calculation for both Amazon and Walmart.
