Downgrading expectations when the stock is getting pounded anyway is a very good thing for next year. Imagine what a great q1 in combination with people being able to take their numbers back up will do for the stock. Much rather have lower estimates than fight all year long trying to catch up to them.
Sqwak box used to have a scene where one penguin jumped in the water following another. That is what you are seeing with just a few(maybe three) that are staying out and standing there ground. Just remember who they are and you will be all the wiser going forward.
