Listen carefully! To report a "Big Earnings" while advocating a reduction in workforce that is deemed unavoidable if the company is to survive is to shoot yourself in the foot! France for example does not want the reduction in their country and is arguing against it..If the company reports positive earnings its good bye to the planned workforce reduction..
You must be dreaming? The company is going to layoff 10,000 workers and yet report great earnings???
To report improved earnings would have killed layoff plans with the French!! I don't know what you mean by disappointing earnings..The best news I have heard is the reported layoffs that will eventually result in significant improved earnings in my opinion..(down the road)
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I have been a follower of seeking alpha, motley fool etc. and frankly most are half baked incomplete analysis..Misleading: Take Nokia for example!! So, do your own due diligence. Personally, i like Charles Schwab, although even they are often late to lunch..
