    Expectations and reality

    here is what we expected:

    analysts estimate EPS of 47 cents on sales of $370.7 million, up from 41 cents and $319.4 million in Q1 2012. For 2013, analysts estimate EPS of $2 on revenue of $1.58 billion.
    "There are many moving parts in Q1, and guidance may be mixed," Schwartz wrote. "After adjusting for currency, the acquisition of Verivue in December and the sale of the advertising business in January, we expect Q1 revenue guidance of $361 million to $371 million, including $5 million from Verivue and a loss of $10 million from the advertising sale, and EPS of 43 cents to 45 cents."

    The reality is the Q was good but SP dragged down because of miss on EPS. I would wait to see how week goes before putting more money in this stock. Volume - IMHO - is the key, and earnings not so much.
