People can get all excited about peripheral issues, but given that this stock's ROIC using Buffett's calculation for Owner Earnings is -31.3%, Owner Earnings Yield of -15.9%, with debt of around $700 million on TTM operating income of $99 million. Adding $5 to the bottom line after payment of the SEC fines are complete doesn't change this reality. Where's their demostrated profitability? Where's their competitive advantage?
