The "analyst" have been continually reducing Q1 EPS as time for earnings report nears.
EPS has dropped from $.86 to $.56 or a 3rd reduction in the forecast in the last 90 days. In the last 3 months we have had 5 different days of 10m share with prices moving up, yet EPS have been moving down.
Something must give. You can't have this type of move unless NE is going to make some major change to its business. Money does not move into a stock from the "big shots" unless they know something or smell the roses from the wind blowing out of the company. My truck bed is ready to back up and load up when/if we move down or find out what the "rose" smell is.
