    Not Really A Miss--Check Non-Diluted EPS

    At first I thought maybe the sky is really falling, but notice that non-diluted earnings per share were 0.89, thereby beating the street by 0.01. Diluted takes into account the larger number of shares this time versus last. Hard to tell how the market will react, but I would be really surprised if HWP gets hit badly, especially considering that the Asian effect had not been factored into the estimates for this stock. Maybe I'm reaching, but I think it will go up from here.
