Finally a non-investment story from Sports Illustrated about the remarkable life a former NBA player who dissapeared on a boat some 10 years ago. I found it remarkable for several reasons:

  • Die habe ich schon länger auf dem Radar. Aber der extreme EPS-Anstieg ist schon heftig. In 10 Jahren eine Verneunfachung des EPS …Und die Schätzungen für 13/14 liegen nochmal 20% höher… Sowas geht nicht ewig gut

  • in meinem Boss modell sieht Konkurrent Valmont auch deutlich besser aus….

  • Lindsay scheint m.E. aber etwas zyklisch zu sein. Und die aktuell “günstigen” Verhältnisse beziehen sich auf ein extrem gutes EPS.

    2008 hat sich das EPS auch fast verdreifacht, um dann im nächsten Jahr unter dem 2007er-Niveau zusein.

    Die Schätzungen für 14/15 sehen Stagnation vor.
