Nice try dopey. Your choice to be as lame as you want to be. You are a biased pumper.
So, you say that profit increased due to operations vs. reduction in special (dysfunctional)charges is equal. OK. You should do a book. Here is the title: "How to make $ in the stock market by finding companies who have reduced their dysfunctional special charges."
I have never seen a book of that title. It would be a first. You could make your millions on that. I won't even ask for any royalties.
