From past four 1/4's EPS = $.81. Share price of $12.88/ $.81= PE of 15.9 Projected PE if EPS increase at 50%, 2003 increased at 62%, but at 50% or lets even say 40% EPS would be $3.24. BLTI at the same PE in 2005 12 months from today with earnings of $3.24 would be PE 15.9 x $3.24 = $51.52 price per share. Is 40% EPS growth rate conservative you think or too high? I think I did that right? Blast Away! Fooling Around, Tom Be gentle : )
You have to take out the 0.61 and replace it with 0.04 for the 4th. However, be very quiet, I think if you do the math it would be 0.15. Estimates are 0.05 for next quarter, I expect 0.15. However, I was way off this quarter. I thought it would be about 0.10.
bill...it was about .10 wasn't it, that is before you add in all the bullshit costs...what is wrong with people who think paying taxes on paper lowers earnings when the taxes aren't due for years? what is wrong with people who think lawyers fees will continue at a high rate...I bet we see this case settled within a month of the close of discovery...the only problem with this stock is a market the gives shorts a distinct advantage by not requiring them to report their bets...if it did, then we would know whether the folks who bought into the secondary are the new shorts who pushed the stock down to its current level...I think they are largely one and the same...I just hope this new IR guy is as ruthless in the cause of BLTI as Needham was in raping BLTI for the shorts...
From past four 1/4's EPS = $.33. Share price of $12.88/ $.33= PE of 39. EPS rose from 2002 to 2003 $.13 to $.33 or 255%. At half the growth of 2003 or 125% growth for 2004 EPS would be $.74. BLTI at the same PE in 2005 12 months from today with earnings of $.74 would be PE 39 x $.74= $28.86 price per share. If growth equals 2003 rate of 255% $45.69. Is 50% EPS growth rate conservative you think or too high? Ok now with the tax benefit out I think I did that right? Blast Away! Fooling Around, Tom Be gentle : )
