Earnings do not really matter. What really matters is whether HBIO is going to separate into two companies, HBIO and HART. Everybody already knows HBIO is not run very well so earnings usually are underwhelming.
Hi Jones! I'm fine with the underwhelming earnings for now. If HBIO drops I will buy more shares. I'm looking forward to the spin off as well. As for HBIO core, the restructuring that has occurred should help. The SA article had some interesting comments about the future that looked like a worthwhile play.
