I've been anxiously considering increasing my MOND holdings, given its precipitous drop. However, I just ran some numbers through the "Pegulator" in the valuing stocks section. [The "pegulator" calculates the Fool ratio.] I used the forward estimate for FY 99 of 2.44, current trailing earnings of 1.89, 6 quarters, and the current price of $38. [If you look at the pegulator page you'll understand what I'm talking about.] The Fool ratio it spit back at me was 1.08-not in the buying range at all. I wasn't able to find 5 year estimates, so relied solely on 2 year projections.

I've never used this tool before, and therefore the room for error in my calculation is vast. [Beyond that, I'm an archivist. We're not known for being handy with calculators. :-)] I'd appreciate it if some other wine loving Fool would double check the numbers. Perhaps collectively we can come up for a rationale for purchasing more shares, or not, beyond the recent price decrease.
