    So Far, So Good

    He may be more in tune with the business than I, but he has not demonstrated that he is more in tune with real numbers. Cheerleader? Just because I challenge someone else's unwarranted pessimism? And besides being a consumer of health care, I only have a peripheral involvement in it.

    Did that. Which is exactly why you got the same number I did. Why tell me to do what I did already when you agree with my numbers?

    I did not suggest that a one day move was demonstrative, you made that up! What's your agenda?

    My tone with fuzzy is based on the fact that this is the second time he has given inaccurate info. May 22nd he stated that a couple of days before Cerner was trailing the DOW - UNTRUE. Yesterday he still could not get his numbers right and said that CERN was still trailing the DOW. If you respect accurate info, you'd get on his case, too, instead of shooting the messenger.

    Are you two related?

    Keeping it real? Fuzzy, again your math is off! With yesterday's spike, CERN is up 3.12% from its close on April 30th, and the DOW is up 2.89% It's the DOW that lags CERN, not vice versa. It's not much (0.23%), but you're way off from the reality. If you keep living in an imaginary world, you'll lose lots of bets.

    Where did you go to school? I want to be sure NOT to send my children to the same place.

    1. Yes, after spending from May 19 through June 18 at up to 6% higher than the DOW, CERN has fallen back (in real terms as well) by 1.47%.
    2. I was wondering if you would do the same as you accused me, of being selective when to post on the price. Thanks for not disappointing! ;-)

    For being a mathematician, you certainly are careless with your use of numbers and facts.

    A "couple of days ago" the positions were NOT reversed. The Dow 30 closed DOWN 1.25 percent from April 30th, while CERN closed UP 0.12% for the same time period.

    Numbers matter, mr. mathematician.

    Fuzzy Mathematician and I have a friendly wager on the relative performace of CERN and the Dow Industrial Average from April 30, 2014 to April 30, 2015. So far, so good. Today the DOW is down 0.23%, and CERN is up 0.35% since the close on April 30th. There is a long way to go, but I am liking the trend. As mathematicians, know, the numbers don't lie.

    Sounds like a reasonable bet.

    fuzzy, a reasonable post, thank you. I sense a friendly wager possibility. The stock closed at $51.30 yesterday, April 30th. For bragging rights, I'll wager you that in 1 years time, it will be higher. Game?

    Unfortunately you can't be consistent in your arguments. If you say that the only thing that matters to investors are stock price and dividends, then why did YOU bring up forward guidance? You can't have it both ways. I feel like I am debating a drunk man. ADD?

    And the deflection continues. Go back to this statement you made: "Guess that didn't show up in their forecast for the next couple of quarters, huh?" So, since I showed your statement to be unreasonable, you randomly jump to something else I did not say rather than admitting that your statement was wrong.

    And exactly what is it that I am reading through rose colored glasses? I guess if you're free to make up things I didn't say, it is then easy to attack them. Nice deflection!

    fuzzy, Your posts are making you look less than intelligent. "Full year 2014 revenue between $3.25 billion and $3.4 billion, which is up from a prior range of $3.2 billion to $3.4 billion." 2013 Revenue was $2.9B, so 'do the math!' "Second quarter 2014 new business bookings between $1 billion and $1.06 billion". Second quarter 2013 new business bookings were $935M.

    You're giving real mathematicians a bad name.
