Average estimates for HAL were 89 cents. I'm sure if you're in the mood to argue, I could dig up a low ball estimate for every high ball estimate you find. HAL didn't miss, if they did, they wouldv'e lost more than a nickel AH. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
If HAL closes even to todays close or LOWER they MISSED!!!
In every circle known to man, they MISSED! It's just not a matter of averages, it where does the BIG money think the estimates are. The Big money's estimates must be somewhere at or above what's posted, otherwise this stock would be up, not down (or even)
Why are we arguing? The stock (HAL) is not up, it's down and I own a TON of SLB calls, not HAL.
