All those opinions are quite indicative of how
investors are looking towards the future of the
company. My largest and least important concern is P/E ratio. P/E ratio for a growing company should not be
looked at in great deal...most young companies don't even have P/E's YURIE is actually making money!
The more important figure to watch is REVENUES and potential revenues. Take a look at the figures below:

Excluding the impact of the Data Labs, Inc.
acquisition, the Company's pro forma revenue for the
fourth quarter, was $17.6 million, representing a 168%
increase over the $6.6 million for the fourth quarter
of 1996 and a 25% sequential increase over the $14.1
million for the third quarter of 1997. For the year
1997, the Company's pro forma revenue totaled $51.0
million, a 136% increase over the $21.6 million in
revenue for the year 1996.

Those are incredible numbers! Revenues increasing both from last year and sequentialy from last quarter. How many companies out there today can post those kind of numbers quarter after quarter???
