    Great Gidance - Let's Do the Math

    For those of you who may have missed it, UNXL gave great guidance yesterday --in the form of the earnings estimates released just before the cc by Williams Financial. For a variety of reasons, ranging from sophisticated to sentimental, Reed prefers to let his fair-haired kid, Cody Acree, carry the torch and show us the way on earnings, and Reed has done this so often that I believe we can treat WFC as the alter ego of UNXL, The guidance is spectacular, even breathtaking -- $1.55 for 2013 and $4.49 for 2014, all fully diluted.. (Compared to my models, these are 50% conservative, but let's work with them.) The earnings growth from 2013 to 2014 is a whopping 189%. (If you work ahead with the production/pricing info provided in the cc, you'll readily calculate earnings for 2015 of at least $13 a share and YtY grown continuin,g at 189%.) Since the chattering shorts have scared most of you shatless, let's apply a P/E of only 50, which is low for this special situation. That gives a 2013 trailing earnings target of $77.50 and a forward target of $225, rising in 2014 to between $225 and $650 a share, depending whether you're a trailer or a forward thinker. For those who gasp in incredulity and may have subconsciously adopted part of the short these, take a look at Amazon, now carrying a trailing P/E of of 3,085, or Sales Force, now boasting a P/E of 5,173. And, by all means, consider the source: You longs have often damned me for being too hard on some of you for your misinformation, hyping, and pumping. You know I never intentionally do that: I call it as the numbers dictate. For more on this, read my post headed Are the Longs the Real Shorts Here. .

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
