No earnings can really suck and this thing will go up. Earnings minus the estimate of the spill costs will be great and this stock will be at about a 6 time next years earnings estimate. The spill will cost no more than 30bil and that is on the very high side. At $40 a share the stock is value to the extreme. Anyone owning the stock at 40 or below will be looking a actual cost dividend payments of 8.5-12% within 2.5 years. Think about that for a minute.
