Good morning,

I wonder if anyone can enlighten me on one question that sticks in mind when sizing up a potential RM using periodical comparison.

Of course I refer here to Ch. 13 - Ascending the Throne.

Why is it important that the ratios and margins be comparisons of a current period vs. that period from the previous year ?

Is there anything to be learned by comparing the numbers from consecutive quarters ?

TIA,
John
