    Forest Laboratories Beats on EPS But GAAP Results Lag

    Next year's average estimate for revenue is $3.19 billion. The average EPS estimate is $0.25."

    • Seems that Fool is right on "Next quarter's average estimate for revenue is $777.8 million. On the bottom line, the average EPS estimate is -$0.17.

      Next year's average estimate for revenue is $3.19 billion. The average EPS estimate is $0.25."

      Counting down to Namenda Cliff on May 2015 (the full generic effect spinning off in November 2015), FRX's 2015 EPS would be in RED. Even 2016 and 2017 EPS may do so.

    • Seems that Fool is right on current Q EPS: -$0.17 (Yahoo consensus is -0.14). Based on FRX's own presentation, FRX hasn't seen RED EPS for any quarter in a decade. No the RED is coming. And if that Fool is also right on next year's EPS $0.25, then FRX will be a teenage in 2013. Icahn will lose big money from his FRX holding for sure. Who did the bad DD for Icahn?
