Discrepancies or current updates? Morningstar

I often X-Ray my stuff using their tool. (Premium.) OK, so today is a week-end. That might have something to do with it. But the changes in the numbers are quite significant, in a good way. How do I know if I can trust them? (Well, can we ever be sure, completely?)

The new X-Ray (6:15 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday) has moved my portfolio's P/E from 1.0 to .77 and that's pretty big, in a good way. P/B is .70. ... PROJECTED EPS over the next 5 years has jumped from 1.18 to 1.30. And (current) Yield is 1.44. That last number is up, just a bit. (All of this is compared to the SP500.) I'm sitting wondering how I could be so smart--- because I'm NOT.


  • I can't help much @crash, but I would say when data has that much variation then that movement probably has little impact on long term investment. Trying to predict future earning during this economic nightmare has to be a guessing game anyway.
  • Thank you, MikeM. You are making sense.
