Articles The Risk of the Single Metric by Bill Sharon Over the past several decades the number of metrics used to measure a company’s worth have narrowed to one: profit. The formula is simple Profit = Excellence You can find this simple construct in everything from the bombastic pronouncements of Donald Trump to the harangues of Jim Cramer. While these people may not represent the more thoughtful among us, make no mistake; their views on what constitutes excellence are widely accepted. The problem is that the formula makes no sense from a factual perspective and creates tremendous problems in assessing risk. Click here to read the paper.
