Heh... apologize for what again? The fact that their revenues were down, that they lost $111 million, that they lost $.04/share, that they are reducing it's work force by 11% and will be taking another $300 million charge next quarter? The fact that, unlike ASCL, SUNW has a very large debt position?
Look, moron, I like SUNW... I really do. I think they are a fine company who has been hit harder than most for the economic downturn and will rebound in some fashion (most likely a buyout/merger).
But, the facts remain very, very clear and unambiguous. Over the last 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, or 2 years, the performance of SUNW from a pure investor perspective has been horrendous. Pushing this back onto the CEO's, the performance of Peter Gyenes, from a pure investor perspective, has been far superior over that last 3m, 6m, 1y, and 2 year intervals.
Those are the facts... they cannot be argued nor disputed... they are as black and white as they get... which company will do better from here on out is speculative at best, but we do know what the historical performance has been of the two companies...
