Hi All,

I've been a lurker on this board for many years now but have not have the courage to participate.
Saul always advised that anyone can do it.  So I'm exposing my lack for the better word in the hope
of eventually learning how to fish on my own.

Based on KB revised, part 2 #17775 I'm doing one for AYX

2016  18.3 19.9 22.5 24.9 =  85.6
2017  28.5 30.3 34.2 38.6 = 131.6
2018  38.4 46.8 54.2 54.2*= 193.6 (*conservative assumption same as Q3)

Non-GAAP Gross Profit
2016  14.5 16.2 18.4 20.7 =  69.8
2017  23.9 25.4 29.3 32.9 = 111.5
2018  38.4 42.2 49.1 49.1*= 178.8 (*conservative assumption same as Q3)

Non-GAAP Diluted Net Income (loss) per share
2016  (0.24) (0.28) (0.18) (0.25)
2017  (0.22) (0.12) (0.06) (0.03)
2018  (0.09) (0.09)  0.08

Dollar Based Net Retention Rate (no 2016 on AYX website)
2017  133% 134% 133% 131%  
2018  132% 131% 131%

Clearly this stock meets and exceeds Saul's criteria in post #43965.

I wanted to learn how to determine if the price I pay when I buy this stock is cheap, reasonably priced, 
or wildly priced and where Saul's graphing #17776 comes in handy.  
This is where I'm stuck!

Like Saul I prefer to do this manually on all my holdings and would greatly appreciate walking me on the 
process with example values that I can trace in yahoo so I can graph it myself.

Thank you all for the help.  Thank you Saul for your generosity.
