Great post yofluke.

The one negative that jumps out at me is the lower ROA after heavy capital spending in 99 and 00 (judging from the low FCF in those years.) Did they invest poorly, or is it just comparing depreciated assets with new assets? i.e. a 20 yr old factory is replaced with a new one that produces the same. Total assets go up but earnings don't. Is that what happened or did they make some mistakes?
