I have to admit the last earnings report has been disapointing - however I will be watching the change in DSO. What is the standard for the industry? What are the company's terms? If they are 30 days I have to agree - they really need to focus on collections but I would suspect that standard terms are closer to 60 days. My gut tells me that Moyer will be putting as much bad news out of the way as quickly as possible in an effort to really post some heavy gains going forward. I am impressed with the top-line growth - any time you can gain share in this kind of competitive market it is usually a good thing - although at what price. Typically in any company who has so much of their business coming in in the 4th qtr, 1st quarter will look pretty un-exciting. I am still buying but the techs as a whole are starting to worry me.
