    And even though I don't hold most analysts in high regard, if they downgrade this stock on top of the missed earnings... look out below!

      So you're one of those people Jim Cramer is talking about when he says people go running out the store screaming in a panic if they see a ON SALE! sign?

      LOL!

      Think about it.

      Good point. Current analyst configurations are as follows:

      Strong Buy - 8
      Buy - 0
      Hold - 9
      Sell - 0
      Strong Sell - 3

      Any shift of the strong buys to just a buy or hold will send the shares spiraling another 5-9%. The analyst consensus is certainly a bit skewed to the top end.

      Let's put it this way, using a qualitative scoring metric, where strong buys = 2, buys = 1, holds = 0, sells = -1, and strong sells = -2. On a weighted basis, this gives us a score of 0.5, or between buy and hold. I would expect the consensus to drift lower towards a hold overall.
