harmy,

If, at some stage, you start to get curious there are a number of people on this board who, I'm sure, would help you get started.
Well, I'm certainly curious, and definitely interested. I am however, fairly sketical, have a pretty good grasp in maths, and can ask an enormous number of questions.

Interesting, your example of Qualcomm. Many of the ratios look similar to those of Resmed.

A few differences, though.
Qualcomm has frequently shown negative earnings. Resmed has shown pretty consistent growth over the past few years, apart from the writedown for last year's acquisition.
Are QCOM's revenues declining? Resmed is still confident of future growth in sales and earnings.
Resmed has consistently beaten analysts expectations, I don't think QCOm has been so consistent.

Just QCOM's fundamentals baffle me as to why they would think it has reached the bottom.
