An article by Seth Jayson (TMF Bent) brings up a good question. I am hoping someone can shed some light on the "other operating activities" mentioned in the article.
I fact checked this article against the latest 10Q and found Seth to be correct.

On page 3 of the 2nd quarter 10Q in the income column:
"Other non-operating income (losses)(464)"

I am not concerned about this at this time. 22% of earnings is a number that is to large not to be disclosed. I am hoping it is disclosed(better than other) somewhere in the filing as share buy backs, or some other large expense, and I am just to dim to find it. With it being written as a loss in the income column, it makes me think that it is not black and white like I hope.
Can anyone help me with this question?
