Right now, I'm thinking $2.60-$2.70 for Q4, which will give us $9++ for 2012 (though most estimates remain below that level...and anything that beats the current consensus or whisper number will be greeted positively). Equally important is management guidance looking into 2013. Anything around $7-7.50 will validate my earning power concept for this company. Another special dividend will show management belief in ability to deliver around that range for 2013.
Nice that we closed friday at both day's high and all-time high. Should have a strong opening tomorrow (Monday 2/11).
