      Hi Ian, KC,

      Thanks for the time spent in doing the case study and summarising Public Bank stocks in a nutshell. Surely, there’re many aspects to look at when one particular stock is being evaluated.

      One question if I may: If you are only allowed to look at 3 key elements/ratios, what would they be? I fully understand that to make the best stock investment decision would mean doing a 150% evaluation, but if one is to take risk (as there will always be risks) and only look at 3 (kind enough not to ask to pick one!), what would they be?

      I’m interested in understanding how would an investor like yourself think. Many thanks in advance.

        For me, it would be Return on Equity (ROE), P/E Ratio, and Dividend Yield. That would be my top three. 🙂

      Hi Ian/KC,

      Based on the last part of the estimated calculation on the ROI on the bank stock, can you share the template on the calculation on the estimate capital gain return? Thanks.
