I suppose that a move from 80 cents to a $1.20 is a big percentage basis--is it $3.00? No.
Rational discourse is important. Poetry doesn't help us much.
And yes, is EPS growing. . . ?Answer that, bitte!
If the stock were as big a bargain as the advocates on this board intimate. .I would expect better price performance.
The apparent modus operandi on this board seems to be "if you are critical or realistic about TRIB's prospects, you must be a liar or shorter. . . otherwise, it's fine to tout the company...even if EPS hasn't grown over the past four or five quarters, despite acquisitions."
I repeat what was said earlier. TRIB may be a good, longterm value play. I doubt if it is an earnings growth story, and one wonders if they are building a niche in what is essentially a commodities business that may have decreasing pricing power (like the Gateways of the world). Are these contentions so unreasonable?
