    Vertex Pharmaceuticals Earnings: Here’s Why Shares are Up Now
    By Derek Hoffman | More Articles

    April 30, 2013

    Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ:VRTX) delivered a profit and beat Wall Street’s expectations, AND beat the revenue expectation. The revenue beat is a positive sign to shareholders seeking high growth out of the company. Shares are up 0.3%.

    Results: Adjusted Earnings Per Share decreased 93.02% to $0.03 in the quarter versus EPS of $0.43 in the year-earlier quarter.

    Here's what I don't get:

    "The revenue beat is a positive sign to shareholders seeking high growth out of the company.
    Results: Adjusted Earnings Per Share decreased 93.02%"

    Since when is a 93% decrease in earnings be reported as a high growth stock?
