TBI's earnings of 19 cents a share for the third quarter 2009, are good and above many estimates. When you have recessionary or adverse conditions, you have to start to measure forward. I like the 19 cents a share or the $8.2 million profit. So $17 a share is still on even if there are a few negative movements. Strong buy yet again from me.
This is a period of change and reorganisation.P/E ratios are a good measure but not the best ratios to use at the present time. Positive earnings, positive branding, potential for growth as the recovery programme works more and more are better measures....etc. $17 a share is on.
