Consensus earnings estimates are far from flawless, but they are watched by many investors and play an important role in measuring the appropriate valuation for a stock. The impact of earnings growth is exponential. Wilder believed that when prices rose very rapidly and therefore momentum was high enough, that the underlying financial instrument/commodity would have to eventually be considered overbought and a selling opportunity was possibly at hand.

An example of the second is gold. The RSI is characterized as a momentum oscillator, evaluating the speed and scale of directional price shifts.

Beta is important because it measures the risk of an investment that can not be reduced by diversification. In the capital asset pricing model, beta risk is the only kind of risk for which investors should receive an predictable return higher than the risk-free rate of interest. The RSI may be more volatile using a shorter period of time. The company will focus on updating the brand proposition by segmenting the marketplace and focusing on targeted consumer groups, refining merchandise assortments, delivering value, ensuring that Pier 1 fits the customer's sense of style and making shopping easier.
