Ford Equity Research 9/17/11 Upgrade Fav to Most Fav Thompson Fin'l 9/6/11 Hold to a Buy Ativo Research 9/3/11 Most Unfav to Unfav Thompson Fin'l 8/29/11 Sell to a hold but, best of all The Street.com 8/22/11 Berk upgraded from sell to a buy....highlights from report.."powered by its strong earnings growth of 7462.50%....." there's more but seems to be predicated on receipt of money from ARS settlement.

agreed it is useless and that's what I meant by "funny". However, the Street.com was a lengthy articles that not only verbalized increases in earnings but other criteria.
