This is according to Wall Street Cheat Sheet:
"Looking Forward: Analysts have a more positive outlook for the company’s next-quarter performance. Over the past three months, the average estimate for next quarter’s earnings has risen from a loss of $1.49 to a loss $1.13. For the current year, the average estimate has moved up from a loss of $6.44 to a loss of $4.12 over the last ninety days."
I agree long as they move closer and closer to positive territory they'll be just fine. Can't always expect stocks to beat earnings.
