Each 21-Month and 12-Year Stock Chart graphically traces the price ranges, plus earnings and dividends, relative-to-market performance, moving average, and trading volumes. In addition, all data has been fully adjusted for stock splits and dividends. Key events in the company’s history are noted on the chart. (See Legends below.)

Monthly Price Ranges are read from the right scale. They represent the highest and lowest point reached. The horizontal cross bar indicated the last trade or closing price.

Adjusted Earnings are read from the left scale and have extraordinary items removed such as discontinued operations, restructuring charge tax benefit, non-recurring charges, investment gains & losses, giving you the clearest earnings performance possible.

Dividends are read from the left scale and are plotted on an annual basis. Dividends above or below the charts as well as specials, extras, irregular payments, etc. are noted.

Relative Performance Line is read from the right scale. This line indicates whether the stock is outperforming, lagging or keeping pace with the general market as represented by the S&P 500.

Growth Performance Measurement (GPM) is being provided in a block that appears in the top left corner of the company chart. The percent gain or loss for price, earnings, and dividends is shown for specific time periods as indicated by the number of years shown. The figures presented are average annual compounded percent return.

The Moving Average is plotted monthly and read from the right scale. This represents the average of the closing prices for the most recent 48 month period.

Volume is plotted on an arithmetic scale at the bottom of each chart. The vertical bars indicate the number of shares traded each month. Thousands are indicated by a T at the top right of the volume scale, millions by an M and billions by a B.
