I'm with you James. This company likes to under-promise and over-deliver. They will likely beat their conservative guidance for 2012. 2013 EPS is likely to be around $3, although they will guide more conservatively in Feb. I have no idea how low the stock price might go in the short term, but long term (3 months on) it will improve. I think a multiple of 15-20 on their 2013 guidance will be seen by EOY 2013. Currently the stock is being punished for their transparency.
ya well there were some BIG negative numbers i knew the market would focus on. But the neg numbers were in construction and MP revenue and the revenue miss for the year. Even though it has a lot to do with foreign currency.
Either way the long term future of TEX has to be unchanged from the quarter. I am hoping they are being conservative for Q4 which is probably a correct assessment given that Q4 would be 39 cents given what they have done so far and the 2.05 guidance which seems very conservative.
I am still quite confident in the TEX quarter that this is currently a $50 stock. The quarter was negative on a top line basis but very positive on a profit and guidance perspective.
You have meaningful 2013 growth this will be followed by more growth and trades at a 10 current PE on that.
