Bachwoman sucks but she is better than Palin. Now lets talk about something else.

This is the worst kind of discrimination. The kind against ME! ~ Bender
[QUOTE=Grant;1059573394]No actually, explaining that is not in my job description, nor was the housing crisis, personally my fault... such a lame attack.
Well if you're an American that partially explains why American banks are having so many problems and the housing market is in such a mess. It must be your job to explain that the billions in bank losses are really profits, huh?
I just see lame attacks, and I think it's funny you pronounce superior knowledge in economics than me, and you didn't even attempt to explain how a company experiencing losses means it is not profitable, especially while it's experiencing growth.Yes, if you had any experience in economics or banking you could.
Weren't the banks involved in this at all?
And you're an American??
Profitability Ratios DefinitionWhat Does Profitability Ratios Mean?
A class of financial metrics that are used to assess a business's ability to generate earnings as compared to its expenses and other relevant costs incurred during a specific period of time. For most of these ratios, having a higher value relative to a competitor's ratio or the same ratio from a previous period is indicative that the company is doing well.
Investopedia explains Profitability Ratios
Some examples of profitability ratios are profit margin, return on assets and return on equity. It is important to note that a little bit of background knowledge is necessary in order to make relevant comparisons when analyzing these ratios.
For instances, some industries experience seasonality in their operations. The retail industry, for example, typically experiences higher revenues and earnings for the Christmas season. Therefore, it would not be too useful to compare a retailer's fourth-quarter profit margin with its first-quarter profit margin. On the other hand, comparing a retailer's fourth-quarter profit margin with the profit margin from the same period a year before would be far more informative.
None of those financial ratios measure losses... profitability is a long term measure
If you think you know more than me, then at least attempt to debate it instead of these lame attacks.
I think it's way, way too early to make a prediction on that. We don't even have an opponent yet and I think probably the biggest factor will be what the economy does over the next year. Recovering economy and running against a candidate like Palin, Bachmann, or Newt? Probably a win. Economy going nowhere and running against a sane person like Romney (who somehow convinces the religious right that he's not Of The Devil) and we have a different story.
One of you will end up here next!
