I think that the disposal of some assets announced earlier is going to cause one-time charges that will reduce earnings. Today's earnings release after market close will, in my opinion, contain these one-time charges and earnings will be lower than the consensus estimate. JMHO... we'll see what happens tomorrow... Now, I am going out for an early lunch and a beer or two!!
looking at price movements over the last hour, price has gone up substantially,... so looks like results may be better than I expected. Obviously someone knows something that the rest of the public does not know!!! I am really confused now.
