Third, it was a darn good call regarding 3Q estimates by Brean Murray. But why, after downgrading Vertex 5/4/11 from a buy to a hold, have they not upgraded their opinion of the stock? Currently, their analyst (Skorney) has Vertex earning $5.64 for 2012 with a forward PE of 7.6. There is also no target price for Vertex listed by this analyst. It makes no sense whatsoever. This analyst who has such insight into this company should be pounding the table and telling everyone it is a SCREAMING BUY!
