Someone tell me this. Who comes up with the
whisper number? Looks like that site that was posted is
based on more speculation and misinformation than what
you find on this or any other board. My understanding
of the term whisper number is that they really only
have meaning for major corporations (the Intell,
Dells, and Microsoft types). In those cases some real
research goes into predicting if they'll hit or miss their
forcast earnings. I would say that ANLT's "whisper" of
.37 means nothing. If they hit forcast earnings I'll
be happy. Cashflow is the real issue anyhow!

Oh, really? Hmmm. Then why would you not know a stmt.

Sorry, BUYANLT, but I'm not going to let that comment
slide by until you address it.
to do more, that's the bottom
Wrong. Mgmt.'s first and foremost responsibility is to
manage the co. for maximum profit and maximum long-term
growth. That's the bottom line. That's the end of
The day when they start kowtowing to short-term
whinings of the more impatient shareholders at the expense
of the long-term integrity of the co. and its stock
is the day I'm outta here.
Mgmt.'s job is to
manage the co., not manage the stock price. If you are
truly interested in a co. that seeks to pump up its
share price for its own sake, I might suggest you seek
out some penny stock. Because you seem totally
clueless w/ respect to long-term investing and to being a
part owner of a BUSINESS.
ANLT is a yawner...So what we're back to where we
were with two weeks ago just after the great news!!!
The MM's keep *&%#ing this thing over...In today's
throw-a-dart-and-hit-a-winner stock picking bull market ANLT should be at 36
not 26...Keeping a few shares just for a safe
bet...but real $ will be made elsewhere...Out today at 25
I speak to Sid, Scott and Geoff whenever I feel
like it and have told them what think. They need to do
more, that's the bottom line. On a positive front, the
stock traded 270,000 shares today and moved up on this
I think we should all cut BUYANLT some slack...
ANLT didn't take off like a 'rocket' when he wanted it
to and that probably drove him right over the edge.
BUYANLT thinks that ANLT's stock's failure to perform
along his predictions is everyone else's fault-- when
it really was his own predictions that were
And it really is too bad that he should exit his
manic stage just as ANLT looks like it might be doing
And BUYANLT; relax. ANLT's a great company, that's
one of the few things people here seem to agree on.
However, ANLT could trade at a P/E of 22 for the next year
just as easily as it could trade at a P/E of 35.
Betting everything that it's price will turn on a dime
NOW (just because you said it would) will simply
and eventually agravate everyone

Of course the market makers
control the market. That's their function on NASDAQ (they
MAKE the market, hence the name). They set the bid and
ask, since they determine what they would buy and sell
the stock for.
A stock split? No way. You
split into strength. You certainly don't split at this
level. Even a 3:2 would be bad news.
isn't doing enough to promote themselves? What would
you have them do? Take out ads on CNBC? Who is the
target market? Look, serious players know this company.
And for a company with a market cap under $200

Finally, today was great. Not even so much the price
movement but the volume. Biggest volume in 6 weeks.
Keeping my fingers crossed. Is the squeeze upon us?? Only
time will tell.
We believe the company can consistently increase
earnings by 25% to 30%, augmented by acquisitions, due to
continued outsourcing trends, deregulation of the utility
