Meanwhile the fake engineer must be chewing on his Aztec's seat cushions!!!! Last year we added close to 40%!!!! But, as other posters have pointed out, this can't be a yearly benchmark. I have no idea what the yearly growth is projected to be in revenue or share price. But if we accept that the market will be up 11-15%, then the ending share price would be? If we started at $100, then we already passed that!!!! So, is there some reliable forecast?
What changed is how the Japanese gov't chose to do business. I don't think TM would be this high without that. So any forcast that was in at the end of 2012, would change for this year. Don't worry about the forcast but what it is doing now - forcasts are as good as the forcasters - and no one has a crystal ball. If we do not have any major and long lasting economic problem, we should do over 140. As we all know, pullbacks happen, so expect a couple of those at least, but they are short term.
