    • You are correct.

      The analysts have interpreted the mountain of cash on the balance sheet, the small share buyback and the lack of clarity from management as an indication that a big acquisition in the works. This is viewed universally as a negative for equity and hence no upgrades. At the current price, they could buy back half the outstanding shares .

      Based on the Q2 results, management's time would also be better spent focusing on operating what they have instead of trolling for acquisitions.

    • from last quarter: $7.37 to $8.18 or 10.9%.

      PS: Go to the quartly report of Monday, May 2, 2011 11:00 a.m. ET and find Total Shareholder Equity ($666,980,000) and divide it by the number of diluted shares (90,417,000). Compare that number to the Total Shareholder Equity in the lastest quarterly report ($914,832,000) divided by the number of diluted shares (111,772,000). Now subtract the higher number from the latest quarterly report and take the different and divide it by 7.37. THAT IS THE INCREASE IN SHAREHOLDER EQUITY PER SHARE.
