Hi, I think you misread the press release. They
said they wanted to be very careful on next qt's est.
They said expect low to mid 30's. To me that's 30-36
cents. Est are for 36 cents. Worst case would be that
they come up 6 cents short for the qt. You can't
multiple that 6 cents out for the entire year. So, I
disagree with you feeling est will be lowered by 18 cents
for the year. Also, CDT always comes in ahead of what
they say, they are extremly concervative. The sell off
yesterday was an example of buy the rumour sell the fact.
We are up today, hardly a blood bath.
is a real possibility, in my opinion.
has run up on the liklihood of beating earnings
expectations which they did. However, now they are telling us
next quarter they will be miss their earnings
estimates by as much as 6 cents. This could mean that full
year estimates will be cut by a much as 18 cents. In
my opinion this is bad news.
I'm not trying to be one, but is anyone else
concerned that the company made comments about not meeting
analysts' expectations in the 2nd qtr? Estimates were for
$.36, company is saying low 30's to mid. I guess we'll
see how the stock fares today.
