Errors and Corrections



August 16, 2011 – Comments (0)

Here's a listing of recent errors and corrections to stories:

*In Will the NAT GAS Act Pass?, we originally stated that "pressure from these groups has led to 13 of the bill's 186 co-sponsors pulling their support for the legislation." That number was actually 15, and furthermore, this statement was missing context -- because while 15 have withdrawn support, another 17 politicians have added themselves to the legislation as co-sponsors.

*In Silicon Laboratories Shares Plunged: What You Need to Know, we incorrectly stated Silicon Labs's consensus earnings forecast. The forecast was for $127 million, not $136 million.

*In First American Earnings Preview, we incorrectly identified CoreLogic as a competitor to First American.

*In Is Western Refining a Buffett Stock?, we identified Paul Foster as the chief executive, when Jeff Stevens, an original founder of Western Refining, has been CEO since 2010. Paul Foster remains the company's chairman.

*In Lincoln Electric Holdings Earnings Preview, we erroneously included Primerica as a peer company of Lincoln Electric.

*In Hollysys Automation Technologies Dropped: What You Need to Know, we claimed that Hollysys had been upgraded by Roth Capital in mid-July, when in fact the upgrade occurred in April 2011.

Foolish best,
