    Yes, a perfect storm. Check out letter the SEC wrote to them on Nov. 21, 2013 (www.sec.gov) questioning a multitude of accounting issues. with respect to cash: in 2013 CFOA were $202.5 while Net profit was $317.0 m. (A DISCONNECT) Fast forward to Dec. 2013 (WORSE) they reported $513 m in net profits and NEGATIVE CASH FLOWS FROM OPERATIONS. (114M) LOTS OF SMOKE AND MIRRORS HERE. When profits on paper are going up and cash is going down, think Enron. Same scenario. UNFORTUNTELY I GOT IN AT 35 in July 2012 AND RODE IT UP TO $89 ONLY TO GET OUT AT 39 DEC. 2014. AND GUESS WHAT? VALUE LINE CONTINUED TO GIVE IT THEIR HIGHEST RANKING OF 1 FOR 6 TO 12 MONTH SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE. I SHOULD HAVE DONE MORE DIGGING ELSEWHERE BUT THOUGHT IT WAS PART OF THE GENERAL MARKET DECLINE. LIVE AND LEARN. Warren buffet and munger lost millions when they bet the wrong way on silver years ago and have lost a ton on some stocks too. nobody gets it right all the time. Now they are in a big dispute with Southern Power.
