    Q1 estimates?

    Anyone have an opinion? I will give you mine based on Q1 of 2007 compared to Q4 of 2006. I think revenues will be between $13 and $14 million with profits coming in at around between $2 and $2.5 million. Thats an eps of .04 to .05 compared to .02 the year before! Revenue up over 40% and earnings up over 100%. That would be impressive!! This is what I am looking for.

    • Should be released on Wednesday!

    • No date has been set. It was May 21st last year.

    • Reading some of these posts I think some are getting greedy. Q1 is always slower then Q4 so people thinking they will make as much as they did in Q4 are going to be disappointed. Last Q1 made less then $1 million. I will be happy with anything over $2 million.
      To make there estimate of $13.8 million they need to make $5.3 million more then last year! To do this they need to average around $1.3 million more profit per quarter! So to stay on pace they need to make $2.15 million in Q1! (last Q1 they made just shy of $.85 million!)

      • OSU, the interesting part of the equation is that if you take out extraordinary income from last year, the company basically expects profits to double this year. That is amazing.

        I am tentative in my guess for the upcoming quarter. I know in general the first quarter is not as good as other quarters. However this company does have a few things going to overcome this. 1. The two new medications that came in on the 4th quarter, will in my estimation double their revenues and profits this quarter before growth in these two drugs begins to slow down. The growth overall of the complete line of drugs has also been fairly significant. If the company can hit a .06 .07 we are on the right track in my mind. If lotus hits a .08, expect a very very good year. Anything above that and this stock is off to the races. That is simply what my expectations are for this upcoming quarterly report. In my mind a .07 is the lowest the company could have for this quarter. I think .08 is the most likely. And i hate to raise expectations, and maybe mine are too high, but i am hoping for a .09. I know, that would be a huge quarter, but hey I can dream big.

    • I think you're target is accurate given their gorwth. I'd say .04/share is the MINIMUM they'll report. Looking for .05, might be as high as .06? Good chance the ttm eps will read .30 (maybe more) here in a week or two.

    • coming in between $2 and $2.5 million.
