Tks Jieren,

Hi Victor, I see wondering if it is possible for Investment quadrant to include such PE graph beside the Intrinsic value table so that alpha lab subscriber we can quickly refer without having to manually plot it ? tks

Hi James,

Plotting the chart is to find the average PE ratio. Once you got the average PE, you just need to use that figure without plotting the chart. There will not be much change to the average PE in the near term.
