thanks. looks like the WSJ worked all weekend to dig up 3 walnut farmers who said the payments they received were for the prior year. But they can't substantiate that. This controversy is very overblown. Nobody is saying the numbers are wrong in any way, they are only saying the September walnut momentum payment should have been applied to Fiscal 2011 instead of 2012. This is the most exaggerated "crisis" on a stock I've seen. It's borderline ridiculous. Today Bloomberg TV reported that PG is still committed to the Pringles sale. That made the stock bounce off 30 change to 33 change. Now, with the indexes getting hit the stock is meandering. DMND is part of about 9 indexes, so there is going to be some exposure to general market. I switched into the June 30 calls, they were only in the 7's which is a bargain. Only bad news is the co said that they will be announcing the closure of the internal probe by February and won't be able to announce earnings until that is completed. February isn't that far off, really. Consensus ranges .72-.78c net. Fiscal 2012 projection including the o/s increase with Pringles acquisition is $3.00-$3.15/sh EPS.
