We debated all the positioning points and I explained to him why each one was not right for him. His previous enterprises were not successful so the first one was out. As he was not technically qualified, the second and third points would be difficult to push through. The fourth one too would have been a far cry from reality. Luckily, Raju was not an egoist, so he accepted my role as a Devil’s advocate with some amount of amusement.
This is a company that not only pays a 60 cents dividend but also has an EPS of .04 a share with a P/E of 26. their 1st quarter earnings came in at 23 cents a share and that is compared to a nickel which they posted for the same period a year ago. We feel that they will continue this growth pattern in 2006. their 52-week high which they made in May is the beginning of a base and their 2nd quarter earnings should beat the analyst estimates by a large margin.

First, that it was not that severe to hypnotize people without them wise and endorsement, there were a lot more situations where being able to hypnotize people could really work to my benefit. Making money doing this kind of poppycock had already interbred my mind.
John: Advertising is big business but the problem is when you are not lean and mean you lose your edge, there are smaller, tighter, privately held advertising agencies out there that have the ability to produce better creative and manage a more comprehensive campaign for advertising clients than Interpublic. I know that its low priced, but the company is in getting desperate as they just arranged a 6 million credit line via a special-purpose entity called ELF Special Financing, essentially, they are selling units that would be payable to buyers in June of 2009. A better bet would in the advertising game in the public arena are Publicis (NYSE: PUB) or WPP Group (NASDAQ: WPPGY).
