Top PLAB Bull/Bear Pitches

The best Bull and Bear pitches based on recency and number of recommendations.

Yet another extemely efficient, well run company whose revs and earnings have been suppressed by the lousy economy. Management, in spite of said economy, has maintained an absolutely stellar balance sheet.

I looked for the worst companies in the worst industries I could find. Then I sorted those by analyst revisions. The ones where the EPS were still being revised downward, I select to short.
