Are these other companies purposely trying to confuse the homeowner? Not to mix metaphors, but it seems odd to hitch one’s wagon to a dead horse like this.
House Values announced second quarter earnings and earnings per share dropped from 14 cents to 7 cents per share. HouseValues said it no longer expects to meet previously announced earnings projections, and has decided “to discontinue its practice of providing explicit guidance” on the company’s financial outlook “because of the unclear near-term impact of a changing real estate market, as well as entry into new businesses with which the company has less history.”
HouseValues will release financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2006 immediately following the close of the market on Tuesday, October 31, 2006. The company will host a corresponding conference call and live webcast at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Register for conference call.
