Past earnings are of no value, do look at forward EPS of 8 and compare it to the industry´s 12! If past earnings were of any value, any company with a recent or hostoric EPS negative would not be even trading.
SWC is not going anywhere unless the air is cleared with the Russians telling us what they really plan to do with their majority holding.
What you say about the Russians is true, however, forward earnings is fortune telling, most recent quarterly earnings are a demonstration of earnings, not fortune telling. You do things your way and I will do things my way.
