Based on your prediction of .27 for the quarter, Did you gat carried away thinking they are close to $.50 pretax for the quarter?????? That would have given them $2.00 pretax for the year. Where do you grow these ideas?
Please note that the earnings this quarter include a $400,000 maintenance hiccup. Without that expense we would have seen an 18 cent report. These extra expenses happen from time to time. Air Methods has come a long way for earnings to grow nicely in the face of this extra expense.
I also have questions about the products division. Management has set aggressive growth goals which have not yet begun to be realized.
With the exceptional weather in q1, the seasonal factor is less important this year.
Last quarter my guess was too low and this quarter too high. All in all a very good 6 months!!
