Layoffs are far from over

Company orig said 2% reduction. It’s more than 2 % now. If they need to reduce their numbers down to 30,000, it’s going to be more like 20% reduction in the end. It’s far from being over. They are just doing it slowly, trying not to draw attention... read more

When will ship totally sink? It won't.

Take a look at their recent earnings and SEC filings. Cash flow has been fine. Sooner they get the cuts done, the better off all will be. Storey and Patel know what they are doing and have a high success rate on integration.
