    CEO Allan Moss said profit will be at least 1.8AUD billion dollars, that equates to 7.28 EPS & roughly 3.65 dividend (50-60% payout, fully franked). This puts MQG on forward P/E of 6.18 & a forward yield of 8.1%, with profit annoucement of the 20th of May. This is less than half the average ASX stock valuation and every time delivered profit has been higher than Allan Moss's well-known conversative estimates. This is the cheapest MQG has every traded in its 12 years of listing on the ASX, and has been one of the fastest growth companies in corporate Australian history. The stock is techically oversold and has been beaten down worse than its wall st peers who have sub-prime & other CDO exposure's which Macquarie doesn't. I rate this stock a buy at current levels of $45 per share and would sell above $70 or at profit annoucement on May 20, whichever comes first. How often do you see a quality growth stock who's yield is higher than its P/E?
