I suspect the earnings reports for Q4 will have every expense tanked in there so they can have a fresh start this year. They are already tagging the quarter with LARGE extra expenses for litigation settlement and restructuring of production. It should be an ugly report with a bright lining for future results.
I'm wondering how the drop in the yen will affect their guidance for Japan. Such a dramatic fall in the FX rate could really hurt their margins in Japan. So it could be a rough report but smooth sailing after.
