    Missed top and bottom line

    Revenue miss. Earnings miss. Receivables down do not bode well for next quarter. Cash improved but long term debt did not.
    Overall a somewhat disappointing report.

    • I think, from a calendar timing perspective, the next quarter will be the biggest miss in many years. Reason: Lower research grants will impact the 1st semester (starting in September) of the research year the greatest.
      It is becoming increasingly clear Congress primary focus will be spending reduction, most likely via another sequester. Since spending already is down over the past several months, another reduction via across the board reductions just makes this much worse.... right in the period when WTR usually has the greatest sales.

    • With another spending limit and sequester for 2nd year this company will again suffer the consequences of across the board budget cuts. Basic research grants are slashed and will be slashed again if Congress fails again to pass the budget or authorize spending limits. Right now, the plan is to slash across the board.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
