Anyone have any thoughts on publisher John Wiley & Sons?Trades at $38.57, close to its3-Year low of $35.Down about 26% from 52-week high ($52).Nice consistent EPS growth:2003-2007 EPS Growth rate 12.1%and 2008-2011 EPS g 12.1% (figuresare averaged at beginning & end.)VL projects EPS Growth 12.5% 5 yearsout...although it appears a good valueeven if they are only half correct.5/10-Yr Book Value Growth 14-15%.Price less than it was 5 years ago.7-Yr Ave ROE: 20.3%, 3-Yr Ave ROE: 19.0%Moderage debt: Long-Term Debt less than2 Years of cyclically-adjustedEarnings (or < 2.5 years trailing).No obvious danger signs in eithercurrent level or recent multi-yeartrends from accounting ratios such as *Cash Flow Financing/Ave Total Assets*Total Accruals/Ave Total Assets*Net Income/Cash Flow from Operations*Balance Sheet Accrual RatioVL claims digital growth may be acatalyst.Might be around tenyears from now.John
