    This is what is so frustrating about the internet, 'news outlets' on stocks. Market Watch is reporting that Mallinckrodt raised its guidance. You are saying here that:
    Mallinckrodt lowers guidance after fiscal Q3 results


    Which one is right?



    "Mallinckrodt PLC said its full-year results are looking "promising" as the company posted a narrower fiscal third-quarter loss amid a surge in specialty pharmaceutical revenue.


    The company boosted its full-year adjusted earnings guidance by 70 cents to $4 to $4.30, while raising its revenue outlook to $2.35 billion to $2.45 billion from the previous range of $2.28 billion to $2.38 billion. "

    The correct response is... SA Market Currents continuously posts incorrect statements about QCOR and now MNK. So what's new?


    How many times have folks had to comment on SA Market Current inaccuracies before SA either fires that editor or that editor learns to read better and/or proofs his posts before posting.

    Here is the company's statement. SA editors you need to get your act together. You keep losing credibility..


    Looking ahead, the company now expects adjusted earnings per share in the range of $4.00 - $4.30, up from the prior range of $3.30 - $3.60. Revenue forecast was raised to $2.35 billion - $2.45 billion, from the previous forecast of $2.28 billion - $2.38 billion. Analysts expect earnings per share of $3.53 on revenues of $2.38 billion.

    This is WRONG. It is the opposite. They have RAISED the guidance. Read the press release again. The numbers are a beat.

    It was a revision upwards. The "revised" guidance referenced here was the May guidance. August guidance was revised upwards.

    Whoever wrote this comment got his numbers backward. Raised guidance. The author should remove this or make a correction. Always read the results that the company reports not paid bashers.
