What liabilities are you looking at?

As of Dec 31, 2010 (
Current Assets = $958M
Current Liabilities = $566M
Total Liabilities = $790M
Diff btw CA and CL = $390M, but you need to give them working capital and some interest payments with that long term debt so you can't back out all $390M.

The calculations you do for determining MUE would have been worse last -2 years back when stock traded near cash value at $17. Since then shares (and my investment) have doubled.

That's true, but we're in a rising tide. S&P is up 100% as well with much less volatility. Everyone is making money and the market is frothy. That's why I like Jim's super conservative approach - it is situation specific and less macro driven.
