Question 1. For research purposes when looking to buy shares, where’s the best site or place to find the main measurements for the listed companies that might be on my buy list?
I’d like to get at least the following and for it be for current and historical data:

  • PE ratio
  • Debt to equity ratio
  • ROE
  • EPS each year

Paul’s answer: Any of the broker sites such as CommSec or Nabtrade should be OK. It is usually sourced from the same provider (which tends to be Morningstar). This is generally historic data. If you want forecasts, you may need to subscribe to a service such as FN Arena. Some of the broker sites now publish forecasts but this is often limited to a very narrow subset of analysts.

Question 2. We’re retired and in receipt of the aged pension. I feel that my holding in AGL has run its race and while it’s fairly well priced, I may sell and replace with Aristocrat. What are your thought?
