    • N, I tried to post the actual numbers, and Yahoo kept deleting it.
      If you add up the percentages from all 3 quarters and divide it by 3,
      the average is 21% income gains per quarter which is very good.
      MF said this about looking ahead after September 30th:
      Next quarter's average estimate for revenue is $134.4 million.
      On the bottom line, the average EPS estimate is $0.79
      So, QCOR only has to reach $0.80 to be above the estimate.

      • When you apply reverse math here you come up with nice earnings for the quarter.

        The company claims to have $155 million at end of 2012 and they paid $27 million in dividends in the quarter. Since cash was at $111.9 million at end of Q3 it would appear that they earned $66.1 million in the last quarter BEFORE any consideration for using generated funds for buying back more stock.

        Seeing how the company bought in over 5.5 million shares in the first three quarters its hard to believe that they didn't buy in at least some shares and in fact a lot of shares with the nice drop in price that happened here.

        So for me earnings could be anywhere between $1.04 and $1.35 a share all being just a WAG after doing the numbers the old fashioned way.
