wstritt (et al.),

I am awaiting release of the official FY 2010 figures. I anticipate resolution w/in 7 days (from this point). I apologize for the inconvenience, and I now realize I should have posted this aspect of the market closeout upfront and early when I published the market. I ask that you provide further patience with this market until the official figures are released (from Navy N1). As a note, there likely will be a timing correlation between release of these figures and signing of the Defense Appropriation Bill by the President.

Thanks for the reply. Just curious though, if the new number won’t come out until the appropriation bill is signed, wouldn’t that be after 9/30/09 leaving 35,750 the operative number as of the 9/30 market date? Or is it that there may have been a change as of 9/30 that just hasn’t been announced yet?

Thanks again.

Time for market to cash out? I couldn’t find anything at that indicates any change from September 2nd. Then again, I didn’t find anything there that quoted 35,750 either. Maybe that came out at same time as CNO Releases 2010 Guidance on 9/2/09?

In any event, I imagine you have better sources.
