Otherwise, I see this very very ominous, just my opinion
Friday sell fest is tomorrow right?? so why worry just yet
You need to focus on continuing operations.
Analyst estimates are based on continuing operations. They missed the analyst consensus. The company will not have the revenue and earnings from discontinued operations next quarter. Did you realize that?
They are selling off their profitable businesses. The opertions they are keeping are not doing as well.
It would help if you could read, the -.03 is without the Southern Flow operation that was sold in January, that's right January, so they had it all 4th quarter and that is what should be weighed, so the bottom line was +.02. And for the year, the analyst average was .17 and they posted .19, it is the blind leading the blind in this sell off but that is OK, I picked up some cheap shares.
Don't believe words and promises. Look what is filed in writing:
"Year-over-year operating expenses increased $1.4 million. As a result, diluted E.P.S. from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2010 was ($0.03) per share compared to $0.09 per share in the fourth quarter of 2009."
I don't know but the bid moved up 5% thru the conference call. I still think selling SF was a good move...it was not growing and the cash is needed for the growing biz.....we'll see.
Listened to the entire call, great conference call except for all the "uh"s, but public speaking is not their full time job. Great explanations concerning how the numbers rack and stack, which paints a much different picture than just the basic numbers in the earnings release. They have some super opportunities with future contracts and plenty of money to expand on their recent investments. Had solid answers for all the questions too. The future looks good for POWR.
Hard to call the impact of this one, if you count the Southern Flow division that sold then they were right on the estimates for the quarter, and beat the one year EPS by 2 cents. But nothing that reflected a clue for the 1500 percent increase in volume yesterday, and nothing that justified the recent PR that indicated they would beat estimates. So the big picture of the last couple days sure looks like a nicely executed pump and dump. Who knows where it will go from here, but I can be more sure that the direction will be where it is dragged, not where normal trading takes it.
