    Earnings

    I've researched and watched a number of public companies. What is interesting in this instance is how (irrespective of changes in revenues) the EPS results for the quarter either achieve or exceed estimates by a penny. It appears the financial machinations internal to the company can always attain results. The danger is that there is typically a quarter where the elasticity of being able to "move the results with financial engineering" no longer exist. My sense is that this quarter will be difficult for genuine economic issues, integration, etc

    Final results should be interesting.
