images 150x150 How Vulcan Materials Benefits from the Housing Bust Vulcan Materials Corporation (VMC) reported relatively weak results today, but the stock moved higher. The company’s cost inputs for diesel fuel increased 17 percent, reducing pretax earnings $4 million and unit costs for liquid asphalt increased 14 percent, reducing pretax earnings $6 million. Vulcan missed on earnings, reporting 0.10 cents per diluted share against expectations of 0.18. Anticipating weaker results due to reduced demand for aggregates, Citigroup downgraded shares back on October 19. Shares trade about 10% higher than the price at the time of the downgrade.

Why would shares rise on an earnings miss? Pessimism has pervaded most of the shareholder base as single-family, condominium, and commercial real estate building have reached multi-decade lows in most markets. Weak earnings over the last several quarters have caused investors to question Vulcan’s ability to maintain its dividend. Third, state funding for infrastructure projects has been questionable given their poor fiscal condition. Currently, short shares constitute over 11% of the float.

I'll tell you, teachers should teach students, Not write sentences that they already understand. Assume that the kids Don't know the terminology, don't you think that's a better way to teach us? Maybe...nd organizational skills... This might explain lots about my problem here. But that aside, I Try Hard. I do try hard! All I ask is they teach us well - Not write crap from the text book onto the chalk board, while not responding to our questions about the content, they really look baffled when we ask them questions. Like they think we're stupid - NO! we are very perceptive about what's going on.
