To paraphrase Benjamin Graham: Over the short term the market is a voting machine, but over the long term it’s a weighing machine. One imperfect but simple way to consider how the market perception of a company has shifted is to compare the change in the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price movement.
Mohawk Industries saw its EPS decline at a compound rate of 7.6% per year, over the last three years. This reduction in EPS is slower than the 31% annual reduction in the share price.
