The company’s stock price fell $2, or 10.53 percent, to close at $17, its lowest

If you look at the previous Crabtree predictions, even from a few months ago, he was still saying we hit bottom...looks like he is finally capitulating.
Bakersfield’s median price for existing homes fell 35 percent in October compared to the previous year, according to the Preliminary Crabtree Report released Monday.
October’s median price was $165,000. A year earlier, the number stood at $254,500.
Last month’s number was also a $10,000 drop from September’s price.
Looking ahead, Crabtree expects prices to drop further.
The median listing price is currently $157,900, he wrote, less than October’s median sales price.
