    Hi Greg,
    I am a regular reader of your blog. I enjoy your articles which are designed to teach the concept of value investing rather than trying to tout your latest investments. I have a question related to an article you wrote a while back titled “The Mark of a Good Business: High Returns on Capital ” . I love the concept and have developed a spreadsheet to calculate expected earnings growth based on your calculations. I download ten years of financial statements from Morningstar and use the numbers from the statements for my calculations.
    I have a couple of question on how to deal with stock buybacks. Typically this is reflected in the treasury stock. So I can add the equity and the treasury stock to get the total equity. This gives me the total increase in equity. But I am not sure how to deal when the company retires their treasury stock. I accidentally found this out for General Mills for example. This information is not reflected for the past years in the numbers published by Morningstar . We need to basically dig up past years SEC filings to find this information.
    I am assuming we need to add up the retired stock AND treasury stock to the equity to find out the true value of equity. If you could confirm that will be great.
