Once again MWW seems to be growing (not declining)
2014 vs. 2013 expectations indicate tepid growth (vs decline past years) ..
that usually bodes well for the stock price .. may be somebody will take out this company private with the improving fundamentals
1% growth in 2014 - not sure that's accurate and might get revised down. I don't think we will know the story (have things turned around) until Q3 number are reported this year. I expect slight growth in Q2 based on history but it's Q3 that matters.
All 3 years you have a slight increase from Q4 of the previous year to Q1 of the next (just like we saw this quarter).
Both years reported here you see another bump Q1 to Q2 of the same year.
Then Q3 you see a big drop then again slight uptick in Q4.
Not sure what happens in Q3 but if that's down again this year it's over. Given the Yahoo deal is up in Q3 I think unkown until Monster announces something on it. If they don't redo the deal they are dead - I would expect a 20% decline YoY. If they do the deal they buy some time but still they would be #5 by the end of 2014.
They would behind Linkedin (#1 revenue in the US), Careerbuilder, Indeed (I see them as #3 in revenue), Dice (growing 50% YoY they should be larger by 2015), and then Monster.
