    Possible sources for Q1 profit to exceed Q4

    1) Reduced cash expenses -- Possible but not very likely.
    2) Reduced non-cash expenses -- Possible but not possible to predict since management does not deign to reveal underlying details, only after the fact totals.
    3) Increased sales prices -- Possible and likely given market conditions but only if terms of the backorders allow it which we don't know since management hasn't deigned to reveal.
    4) Change in mix of production to higher margin models -- Possible but not possible to predict since management doesn't deign to reveal margin information.
    5) Increase in production -- Possible and likely but the size of the increase is likely to me modest.
    6) Management was less greedy and over-compensated themselves a little less -- DREAM ON !!!
