    lots of upside from these prices

    Longs hold on tight. The time to buy is when
    things seem the bleakest. The core businesses ex-coal
    for PZB are very solid and earnings should begin to
    grow from the $2.00 EPS base. Fair value is currently
    in the $20's and any earnings growth will eventually
    push this stock into the $30's. The market can't sell
    indiscriminantly forever!!!

    • Rumour has it that BAX has changed the incentive
      plan for sales(again). This may prompt a good many
      qualified sales people to head to greener pastures. Another
      wonderful morale booster from C Bob and his brilliant crew.
      Now BAX sales reps have average service and high
      rates to sell, along with a less lucrative bonus plan.
      Sure would make me want to work there!!!!

      • Hey dancin'fool, I am surprised by your negative
        comments concerning the sales incentive. As any Senior VP
        of Human Resources will tell you, the way to get
        sales people to work harder is to lower their incentive
        pay. Here's how the math breaks down:

        Old
        Incentive Program
        2(Hardwork)=x

        New incentive
        Program
        4(Hardwork)=x

        So you see that, where variable x equals the
        salespersons commission, twice as much work is now created for
        (x)commission.

        The preceding message is a reminder that highly
        compensated HR executives are much more intelligent than you
        might think. In fact, I might go out on a limb in this
        case and say that the SVP of HR at BAX can even
        cipher!
