China Ming Yang Wind Power (MY) Misses Badly, But Bounce Coming?

It’s been a mighty rough go for any stock related to wind energy and China Ming Yang (MY) is no exception as the stock continues to drift lower and lower.  It’s latest earnings report isn’t providing any help.  The company, while profitable, missed analyst estimates by a wide margin reporting an EPS of .10/share (vs estimate for .20) on revenue of $217 million (vs estimate of $240 million.  The more than two year streak of sequential growth ended in Q1 and this quarter represents the first quarter of no quarter over quarter growth in quite a long time.  Clearly, this is a company that has been going backwards, but has the stock already fully priced that in?  It wouldn’t appear so judging by today’s action, but this is still a profitable company that has been hammered.  You have to believe that some kind of decent bounce is coming.
