5. Lol... and coincidentally... you're still wrong.

Just as with the prior error that I apparently misread.

Ok... so what you were actually talking about is a 2009 move to "sell"? That's about the same time that you and Bananas were touting the expectations for growth in the solar manufacturing sector.

So shall we compare those two predictions? Citibank says "sell" SO in late 2009... but SO outperformed the S&P for most of the time since then and has only marginally underperformed (up 35% vs up 45%) to date. And do we really need to compare it to the performance of solar manufacturers over the same period?

I didn't think so.

BTW - The OP listed 3 reasons for the problems with Southern - 1) too much emphasis on coal, 2) foolish risk-taking with a new nuclear venture, and 3) not enough focus on renewables.

And that's the error I was correcting. The better houses have reasons that make far more sense.

Trying to hide the narrative in the OP behind technobabble is also a complete fail



I go out of my way to oversimplify and you still call it "technobabble"???
