    Dismal Performance?

    Hmmmm...you're not telling the whole story. The 782 P.E. is due to 3 cents worth of earnings so far. This quarter PBY has a chance to wipe out a 2 cent loss with an estimated 11 cent gain. That's a 13 cent turn-a-round. That's the reason the forward P.E. is about 38, which is much more reasonable. Should PBY report 11 cents eps, this stock will resume it's climb. Anything less than 10 cents and this stock's price will stagnate or drift until the next quarter. ANY upward surprise will cause a stock buying frenzy. This will be the most important earnings report to date.

    • Yes it will be an important benchmark, but with smoke and mirrors they may be able to pull it off if sales cooperates a little. If not, a reversal of some lawsuit reserves will suffice even though it wouldn't be as a result of operations. Its too early in turnaround attempt with the new CEO, changes have been implemented but it will take a while to show. But they dont have unlimited kitties.
