Centex earns $85M in 1Q due to one-time tax benefit

Dallas-based homebuilder Centex Corp. – which is being sold to a Michigan builder – made $85 million in the quarter ended June 30.

The profit of 68 cents per share came from a one-time $410 million tax benefit, the company said Monday.

Without the tax benefit, Centex would have lost $322 million, compared with a $182 million loss from continuing operations a year ago.

"Hey Fokker!...."

...all we need is for UNG to hop over this pair of moving agerages and we're off to the races...first stop at $15.60 hopefully tomorrow. This will be the fourth test of one of these moving averages and appears to have based there the last couple of days building up some strength for the lunge up and over. At the least, resistance should become shport for further surges.

Anthony caused pearls to be dissolved in wine to drink the health of Cleopatra; Sir Richard Whittington was as foolishly magnificent in an entertainment to King Henry V; and Sir Thomas Gresham drank a diamond, dissolved in wine, to the health of Queen Elizabeth, when she opened the Royal Exchange; but the breakfast of this roguish Dutchman was as splendid as either. He had an advantage, too, over his wasteful predecessors: their gems did not improve the taste or the wholesomeness of their wine, while his tulip was quite delicious with his red herring.here

Natural gas intelligence reports that "screen, heat" keep prices rising at nearly all points. Heat, weather load, declining production- they're all good. I chickened out and didn't buy more contracts on the last dip to 3.71 (October) but still have one left, in addition to my boat load of UNG. Also, my Dec. Corn calls bonered yesterday. Wish I had more!

...A declining spenglerian carnival of Colossaalism united with Inflation where the numbers one through 10 are forever banished as worthless arithmetical detritus from a bygone age... - Beardrech

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty
