Understand the wall street mentality....just disagree with it is all. Wish we had a few more companies that "earned $1.25 billion, or $3.92 per share, during the three months ended in June. That represented a 35 percent increase from net income of $925 million, or $2.93 per share, at the same time last year". Instead we have a financial community that rewards companies that don't lose as much money as they thought they should. The move from evaluating companies and investments based on profitability versus comparing to an ivory tower expectation of analyst in my opinion is asinine....however it's the world we live in.
