    Top to Bottom

    133.88 (a-t high)
    98.11 (so far)

    is a 26.7% drop

    Achieving double-digit earnings growth (eps level) in 2008 would imply a minimum of $7.77 in e.p.s.

    At par, that yields at P/E ratio of 12.9x, slightly lower than the P/E currently on GE.

    With $3.5 million in cash at year end 2007, we could envision more than $15 million of cash at the end of 2008 absent any share repurchases. A $20 million share repurchase could cut the share count by 8% or so (assuming some premium were needed to get the shares in). That would leave the company is a pretty strong financial position come year-end, in my view.

    I'm glad I lightened up a bit in the 120s in recent months. Wish I had lightened a bit more.
