Sounds right.  The way I do it you always get a positive increase or
decrease whereas you will get a negative sign for the % of decrease
and a positive sign for a percent of Increase.  

If you say, "Percent of Decrease" then you don't need a negative sign
because the word "decrease" says it for you.

So, you method sounds OK to me.
