    • The market got hammered this a.m., and EGHT felt
      the pain as well, down all the way to $6.oo shortly
      after the open. This is probably the best buying
      opportunity we will see for a while, especially if the qtrly.
      #'s come out at or above the estimates. There seems
      to be a lot of focus on non-items in here lately
      like the broadcasting hype. The product 8x8 supplies
      is focused on 2-WAY communications, the statements
      that this technology (internet broadcastring) has been
      around for some time is correct, and while there MAY be
      some perifreal room for 8x8 in the industry, the
      players have already been determined (realplayer,
      brodcast.com and others) and I don't think 8x8 is going to try
      to beat these guys at thier game, we got our own
      league and have NO NEED to try to be a broadcasting
      company!
      I wish that some of the posters in here
      would get a grip on both the company and thier own
      posts, as a parent, and advisor to the local CNBC
      Student Stock Tourney Team (at the elementry school) I
      wish I could share some of the message areas with the
      students, but when there is filthy trash talk going on like
      we see here it is not possible! Wish you that
      consider yourselves sophisticated investors would learn to
      talk like a simple adult!!
      As for the stock, get
      it while you can, this is THE lowpoint before
      earnings come out, and I think it may be the last
      opportunity to buy at this level before the next run begins.
      Good investing to you all, and as
      always,

      Peace,

        I agree! As
        for the upcoming earnings report {Monday} I offer the
        following comments: EARNINGS: ??? many factors to consider
        ala license surprises and promotional costs so 8x8
        may or not make the -22 cent consensus / REVENUES:
        This I think will offer investors a grasp of what lies
        down the road. Me thinks the revenues will be up big
        time {the videophones are selling} and I am
        particularily looking for Voois's statements about the business
        going forward. I would think the report would include a
        statement about recent award from CES {Thanks Butthead for
        link}.
        Mr market absolutely loves earnings, but sometimes
        will overlook them for great growth companies that
        dominate their market that show strong top line growth. Me
        thinks that IF 8x8 delivers both good revs and earnings
        that the single digit stock price will soon be
        history. {looking forward to Monday}
