I've read the reports.
I use Thompson for estimates
Thompson (which owns first call) will likely post their upgrades to sites like Yahoo later this week or next.
The numbers I receive are real time--hence the reason no links.
Even Jeff raised their yearly estimates ($2.23 to $2.37)
Jeff raise their estimate to for December from 60 cents to 96 cents.

You spend too much time posting and too little time reading
I SAID RYAN BECK's ESTIMATES FOR FY2007 were $2.90 excluding option expensing going into the year.
They raised their estimates in May.
We are maintaining our Outperform rating and 12-month price target of $74 based on a
multiple of 12.5x our estimate of EV/F2007 EBITDA. The stock currently trades at
10.6x F2007 EV/EBITDA. Recent price weakness has created a buying opportunity, in
our view. FY2007 EPS $2.90"
NEW YORK, August 10 (newratings.com) - Analysts at Ryan Beck & Co maintain their "outperform" rating on American Science and Engineering Inc (ASEI.NAS), while reducing their estimates for the company. The target price has been reduced from $105 to $72.
In a research note published this morning, the analysts mention that the company has reported its F1Q07 revenues short of the estimates and the consensus due to aggressive expectations and timing issues. American Science and Engineering�s gross margins and backlog for the quarter were higher than expected, while its cash balance remains healthy, the analysts add. The EPS estimate for 2007 has been reduced from $4.00 to $2.34 to reflect tough work booking comparison and an increase in FAS 123R expenses.
Not quite. Higher taxes and option expensing cost the company 42 cents this past quarter. Most analysts look at the pre tax/pre option expensing number when comparing ASEI this year to previous year.
You just don't get it. And you never will. $200 million in "super" backlog and the company only did $160 million in total revenue last year. This stock will soon be trading off of the 2008 estimates not the 2007 estimates.
We should see well over $200 million in revenue 2008.
