I feel that having some idea as to where the stock has been in relation to it's logarithmic CAGR is sometimes valuable in helping me decide upon entry and exit points.

Oh sure. It always makes sense to see if a stock has had a big run-up or fall before committing funds, but any historical stock-price chart can show that. I'm just skeptical that anything additional or useful can be gleaned from a custom made "logarithmic" price CAGR chart.

As you say "mileage may vary" and each to his own.
