Hi Hewitt,

Have you changed any of the inputs used to determine PIV-ER since you first presented it here? For example, I notice you mention ROE as a driver, but I don't recall that being part of the original calculation. Also, I see you list total earnings and share dilution, whereas I thought you began with EPS, then applied analyst growth estimates to that number (which would assume that the analyst's growth estimates are for EPS and thus have taken share dilution into account in calculating EPS growth).

If you could share the inputs and how they are used once more, I'd greatly appreciate it. As it is, I get almost the exact result Dean got for SNDK - but then again, we collaborated on the spreadsheet used to calculate PIV-ER, so it should come as no surprise that we get similar results.

Thanks,
Paul
