For example, Janus 20 3 yr return is 36.72 vs. cisco five year earnings growth of 48.8.

Are they comprable, if not why not?

Do you have any calculation set up that would allow us to enter in the variables in order to compare apples to apples.

The numbers are different and I don't think they compare. You can get stock price appreciation for any time period from a chart and a calculator:

But really, what is the point? What Janus 20 or Cisco did over the past three years is no indicator of what they will do over the next three. I can guarantee the return will not be the same. I just can't tell if it will be better or worse LOL
