"This guy Leigh is a major league defensive sounding ass. Not good for a comapany that is struggling to regain it's reputation. He has been defensive on the inventory issue which makes the company look like it is hiding bad news....they continually make this mistake on their calls. They have great products and seem to have a super growth story....but damn they are bad. "
CFO antagonizes the analysts. Has an air of superiority and flipness. Plus he hedges and is unnecessarily evasive, exactly as you say...makes it look like the company is hiding something even if they aren't!
