    P/E ratio.....Are you people REALLY as stupid as your posts indicate?

    No sir, you are actually the moron, because you apparently can't read.

    First of all, I acknowledged in my response that 2011 earnings are positive 20 cents, so there's no need to repeat it as if I didn't hear you the first time. Yes, you are correct that the p/e ratio is 41 based on 2011 earnings. You've done the math twice in this chain. Congrats. You passed 4th grade math.

    Perhaps you missed my main point that if the company goes from -8 cents to +20 cents in one year, that its reasonable for the company to go from +20 cents to +50 cents in the next year, as the economy improves. That would be an improvement of 150%. Which is, in fact, a faster rate of projected EPS growth than GOOG or AAPL, or whatever stock has had positive earnings throughout the recession.
