this pos is all buy poised to sink. nok will steal alu wireless business core with out buying it as customers seek a strong company with a bright future. ALU to be sold in BK court for pennies. ALU shareholders left with a goose egg.
how I know. My track record in picking losers.
20 billion in sales you should be making a profit. Super bright future for increased sales. One should be making a profit.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
combs has to sell the union that ALU is doomed to push the layoffs
if the union & ALU make an agreement prior to earnings report we will know earnings and forward guidance is positive
if the union & ALU do not make an agreement prior to earning we will know earnings and forward guidance are negative
.07 per share forward guidance very positive price after earrings $5.95
If ALU was in such poor shape a sale of ALU assets would have been announced. ALu must be in good enough financial shape to hold off for the best highest price on the assets. Also, ALU will not sell any assets prior to handling the layoffs in France. It would look very bad to have cash and the balance sheet looking better and than announce layoffs. All positive news will arrive after the unions and ALU handle the layoff issues. ALU I am certain knew what they were in for prior to announcing the French layoffs. That was no secret. I am looking forward to positive growth estimates, higher margin rates, lower costs of debt, more production per employee, and higher shareholder value.
Of course he is going to dump as much expenses for restructuring in the prior quarter which no one holds him accountable for. As well, any sales most likely also were held off to be booked in Micheal's first quarter. If anyone thought this would be a golden quarter they need to quit smoking the funny stuff. The quarter came in as expected.
