    I'm not selling @ this price!

    I don't understand the market reaction related to
    the earnings announcement.
    Maybe they aren't
    related. P/E is still high, but earnings $.05 higher than
    estimates, come on.
    Oh well, I'm not even selling @ 48,
    so the gyrations of the market do not matter. It's
    only a loss (or reduced future income) if you sell.

    • the market did not react to the earnings, which
      came out great, right on target with about 18% bottom
      line growth from one year ago, with a nice little 5
      cent/share tax credit for sales of the long term ambulatory
      care facilities. If it was a buyers market we would
      have seen WAG pop this morning. The markets reacted to
      the the overnight sell off of asian and european
      markets yet again, combined by the International IMF
      meeting which produced no agreeable decisions untill late
      sunday night, even that seems ify at this stage. It
      seems that they may have come up with some agreement on
      how to bail out Brazil's faultering economic
      fondation. Combined by elections in Brazil, a major emerging
      economy, fortunate Fernando was elected, one of the few
      with some good ideas for Brazils economic future. So
      the market sold off this morning but made a nice
      rebound up about 125 DOW points from its intraday low to
      close at only 60 points down. This a slight positive
      sentiment. Maybe things will cool down tommorrow. We might
      see some up side since the Dow may have found an
      intermitant bottom, we'll see what happens in the world
      overnight. With the markets cooperating tommorrow, we may
      just see the buyers come in, and the market for WAG
      will sure to be good.
