I hope I am wrong but I am worried by the change of dates for the 4Q EPS release. Why? They generally wait until the last day of the quater to release earings and in this case it would be March 31. Why do they want to speak to us BEFORE the expiration for bids on Feb. 28, and then not be required to say a word until May 15 when they have to release 1 Q numbers? And why have they made this decision so suddenly?
There s a reason, we can be sure of that/ Probably two hundred people or more know that reason. What they do with that knowledge between now and Thursday will be very interesting!
First of don't worry. Secondly, because of the time zones, PNG is 1 day ahead of the USA, so the cc on the 28th in the states is Mar 1st in PNG. The bidding will have been completed. They will not have reviewed the bids yet, but most likely they will probably comment to some degree on them. Prepare for a pps spike onthursday and Friday. IMHO
