    Inventory

    This stock is not for the faint of heart. Fact is, in Q1 and Q2 '12, EW had an all time high inventory on their balance sheet. With the revenue missed in Q3, I suspect ending inventory will be somewhere in the nosebleeds of $270M on sales revenues of only $448M. If you do the math, EW has nearly 7 months worth of inventory on hand. Mind you, their inventory is based on production lot with short shelf life. If somehow revenues don't proceed as planned for 2012, they will eventually be writing off their inventory.

    Management can continue to do stock buy back while insiders are cashing out. Shareholders are the ones who eventually be screaming bloody murder!
