    I started following "awesomestokcalerts" (Gooogle it - off course without any space or dash in between the words) and their notifications are better than anyone else.

    FIRED -- if management can't make money now how can they ever do it. Robert Patterson has FAILED. He is not growing the company in a way that protects profits -- growth for growths sake is not smart growth. SO - the board and Patterson should step down and out. This is incredible and now they say OH THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR WILL BE BETTER...what crappola. How can they say that. They should be cutting costs months ago. Patterson should be held accountable as this stock should be in the 40's to low 50 range. He should also BUY SHARES ON THE OPEN MARKET as should the entire management team. 5k shares minimum - OPEN MARKET. When I owned Spartech they would always run when markets were good and economy was good - PolyPatterson just DROPS. Management must GO. Where are the investors who should be stepping in here and getting on the board or forcing management to address shareholder value and look at enhancing via any means possible including the sale of part or all of the company. Just awful. Boolean

    If management fails to bring earnings to the bottom line again in this report then the board needs to remove them. When I owned Spartech they always ran higher when stocks were doing well. This is a mess if they aren't driving big numbers to the bottom line. Boolean

    CEO Bobby Patterson makes $3.34 million per year.. That comes out to $1,605.77 per hour based on a 40 hour work week. How does that make you feel if you are a worker in one of the PolyOne plants?

    I think as shareholders we look to merge this company with someone. Clearly management is not adequate!

    As a former Chairman's Cup winner nd retiree since 2004, I feel pretty dumb having held my 2,000 shares and watched the share price crash from $45 to $10. If I had certificates, I at least could repurpose them.

    A good earnings report but still a long way to go to get back to its all time high. Still time for a new CEO!

    Patterson - DID you read what Warren Buffett said - SHARE BUYBACKS ARE A NO BRAINER.....BUY A TON SON TO MAKE UP FOR YOUR INADEQUACY AS A CEO. Thanks. Boolean

    If management can't money in this economy then they need to step down and sell the company...the board and CEO must do their fiduciary duty in support of shareholders. So let's see tomorrow what happens. Boolean

    Time to look for a buyer for this company.

    POL today’s announcement of annual report gives a picture of the firm’s past year performance. The stated profits include earnings collected (cash flows) and those not yet collected (accruals). Accruals are thus the firm’s forecast of future benefits. see http://www.financial-education-hub.com/1/POL. The forecast, however, may have errors. Some companies can even use accruals to manipulate their earnings. As a result, accruals may not be fully realized, leading to high accruals associating with low subsequent cash flows. From this perspective, the higher accruals in a firm’s reported earnings, the more likely it will record poor future earnings.

    Patty - must be fired NOW. The board must be fired NOW. Expanding the company without a roadmap to profits is derelict and devoid of fiduciary duty. FIRED. Boolean

    PATTERSON - you need to issue a press release indicating you are looking at strategic alternatives.....YOU along with the entire board should buy at least 5k shares on the open market to show you are a believer in your poor management skills. Obama ignited this economy and market and it carries on today yet you are unable to profit in a roaring economy.....come Patterson....come on. Boolean

    Earning seems OK for the time being but deep problems with the company. Liked to explain more if I had the time.
