Did analysts expect more? The analysts questions seemed to be centered on fear instead of optomism. What did the analysts expect. The numbers were far more then I expected. They have bought back 20% of their shares - they have loads of cash - they are going to grow modestly this year for sure and they are looking for ways to invest the remainder of their cash hoard. They are going to be careful until they see how bad this oil problem is and for how long.
