"UniTek Breaks Even in Q4, Posts Loss in 2013
Shares of UniTek Global Services, Inc. (UNTK) fell around 5% on Mar 31 as the company reported breakeven results for the fourth quarter of 2013 and a loss per share of $2.73 for the full year.
The fourth-quarter breakeven results, however, compared favorably with the prior-year quarter loss of 13 cents per share as well as the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss per share of 16 cents. UniTek Global Services’ loss of $2.73 per share in 2013 was narrower than the loss per share of $4.28 in 2012."
It is weird how headlines make the the story. To my mind, the headline could just as well has been "Unitek beats consensus, goes from $13 per share loss in 4th quarter 2012 to breakeven in 2013"
