    Earnings release!

    I was truly heartened while reading through the
    press release. This thought came to mind. Market
    instability and economic conditions cause temporary problems
    for stocks (bank stocks especially it seems), but in
    the end, the only thing that really drives the
    valuation is the earning POTENTIAL for the company. As long
    as the potential continues to improve, their is
    nothing fundamentally wrong. If nothing is fundamentally
    wrong, then we can just ignore the temporary lapses
    knowing that time will take the stock higher.

    all that said, I feel somewhat better about my
    retirement plan. ;)
