    Question what does it mean when the headline says "may not be comparable to consensus" vs. something like "missed". What is the difference?

    It means they reported a number very far away from consencus and perhaps this website didnt pick up a special one time charge or something like that. In this case it was just a big miss

    thanks I thought it was something like that.

     

    FYI for such a big mess the stock hasn't gone down very much!
