why should I have estimates?
all I'm saying is that expectations after the acquisitions were high,
and most of the analysts were forecasting high mktshare:

for instance:
saloman smith barney june 3/98 report stated with sofsource, the combined
mktshare is 40%
while others like wasserstein, forecasted 46% after Brod!

meanwhile alex brown who's been pounding the table, forecasted
revenues of $210m for Q3 in their 7/24/98 report!

my point is the analysts &yourself have hyped expectations to such an extent that
TLC had to execute perfectly....

it seems that it hasn't, and well you know how disappointments punish stocks...so
Tom will TLC make $210m in revenue ?
