    Smoking HSP

    HSP blew away the consensus. Those people buying late in the day yesterday must have known something. What a phenomenal quarter for a much maligned company. Did not raise guidance for the full year, which is surprising considering this quarter. The CC will be interesting, because there was real sales growth. It wasn't just all expenses being pushed in to other quarters as that analyst who downgraded a couple weeks ago said.

    The big question is, will they "sell on the news" or buy? My guess is they will buy because this beat by a huge margin. It was not within the margin of error. I'll get back to you on that by the end of the day.

    Go HSP! Go Begley!
