    I thought analsts valued a stock based on...

    future earnings potential????? I don't get it....They say the long term looks bright for Adobe, yet the immediate earnings potential is diminished because of their change in business approach. SO WHAT! Going forward Adobe will make more now than ever before........yet we are down 6% in PM...

    • "future potential" is speculation... how are you guaranteeing anything in the future. What ADBE claims? well they didn't see the euro issue... nor will they see the collapse in US consumers.... don't count your eggs before they hatch. ADBE future earnings are worthless without the FED easing money

    • getal*: With that thought overwhelming your mind, it will be hard for you to absorb this concept IMHO: lookup "time-value of money"! Plus, mo-mo's have other nice fishes to fry in the market right now. So, they move on, and perhaps revisit the issue after a quarter or two, when it'd be clearly oversold. That may not happen until 23-26 though! Plus, "margin-compression" is a difficult phrase to digest for most growth-hedgies. And all these, persistent EU worries!
