VNO (Profit Margin question from Barrons)

Discussion in 'Stocks' started by Gambitman, Apr 10, 2010.

  1. I just started subscribing to the online version of Barrons. I was using the stock screener today looking for some opportunites and decided to do a screen by Profit Margins. When I do a screen for stocks with Profit Margins above 20% VNO comes up with a PM of 63% which seems ridiculous. When I bring up a stock quote on either Barrons or Yahoo Finance they show a Negative Margin which makes analysis a little difficult. Was wondering if anyone here has experience with Barrons scanner and why the Profit Margin number would be out by so much

    I am sympathetic to your plight. You'll be OK, however, so long as you fade all their recommendations. :D
