    Why did they pre-release?

    Why did they pre-release information just prior to the expiration of options? Earnings don't come out until next week. Were they required to do so?

      Poor judgement. If the news is not going to be released at least month early, then there really is no "good" reason for doing it. Making such "public" announcements can expose the company to litigation because the official public announcements are suppose to be throught the SEC. After all, what good does it do anyone now for FLIR to pre-announce what they think earnings were for last quarter? It is already over now!!!

      At least that it the way I understand it.

    • Probably to weed out the peasants and weak buyers

      they wanted to get some institutions in at a lower price....just some manipulation because they numbers are still in line for the year...
