    This dog is done
    Can't wait to hear the big spin for next Qtr. from the 2 Bozos
    2011 Fiscal for Q2 and Q3 $1.46 and then $1.74 respectively

     

    They just hit $0.80c for this Q2-- and yet say they will maintain at $1.20 to $1.40 for this coming Q3 = How is that 62.5% increase going to happen exactly ??

     

    No new products and the products they just shipped to hit $0.80c in Q2 are not selling thru to create new re-orders and now iPhone 5 monster launches in 2-3 weeks

     

    Ouch !!!

    Investable?
    Wait for a dead cat bounce, then buy January puts?
    Somehow this stock appreciates between earnings announcements, and every time I'm afraid to use puts 'cos I think there'll finally be something positive. I mean, how many quarters in a row can they get earnings so wrong?
