I always have a hard time making sense of these numbers. If I take the $22.43 moving average for December, multiply it by 3 and then subtract November actual of $21.83 and October actual of $22.05, I get a December actual of $23.61. But if I take the full year of $226.3 and subtract the actuals for January through November I get $25.45 for December actuals. Thats a pretty big difference. Hopefully the actual for December will be released shortly. I really don't like the moving average.
