    Next stop $4.25, then $3.50 after earnings

    More branch closures. More layoffs. Now a company that approaches companies to outsource their IT needs, is outsourcing its IT Department. Times are tough. Great leadership, great CEO.

    Listen to McCormick Red.

    • how do you explain the huge jump in revenue per sales rep? I agree that the near term could be ugly, but all the assets have to be worth something, the $3B netowrk, the data centers, the brand name, the cash cow dial up business. All of that would be very hard to duplicate, it would cost far more than $1B.

      • A. A starving cow. Dial up is a declining based commodity. The growth here is stopped. Margins are shrinking across the board.

        B. Huge jump? When you let go sales guys, they number grows. See a share buy backs. Same concept.

        Ask yourself this; if business is so good, why the branch closings and muli-tiered layoffs? Last I checked, growth companies hire, not downsize.

        10% data center occupancy. You think any business can service like this? Think of any service provider, that doesn't cover anything.
