Wow that must be one of the most stupid articles I ever read.
If the economy is good, if the company is doing great in business, there is always the journalists last straw for the negative spin - the decline in growth.
- Hey Bob, Widget Enterprises made 2.2 Billion more than last year, even topping the growth of the year before of 2 Billion.
- Nah Jonny, nobody wants to read that. People only want bad news, lets do a little math:
Two years ago they made 10 Billion, last year 12 Billion that's 20% more, this year 14.2 Billion - but wait thats only 18.3% more than 12 Billion - biggest decline in growth ever!
WIDGET ENTERPRISES GROWTH RAPIDLY DECLINING - SHAREHOLDERS ALARMED - IS THIS THE END OF WIDGET ENTERPRISES? WILL WIDGET ENTERPRISES SHARE THE DOOM OF ALTAVISTA?
- Wow Bob, you still got what it takes..
