    1st Qtr Apr-jun 2012 Qtr

    operating loss of $59 million (including restructuring charge of $31 million)
    Gross margin for the quarter was 30.8% "was negatively impacted by the combination of restructuring related costs, the acceleration of actions taken to
    streamline the product portfolio, a provision for a likely settlement of a patent dispute,
    and a weaker euro"

    • Minimally, I expect LOGI to beat the current estimate and provide upbeat guidance for the remainder of the year. Expectations are so low right now, there is nothing they can say to take the shares much lower.

      I'm actually torn if I want to see the shares rebound sooner, or have the ability to buy more shares cheaper in the near term.
