Yup, the analysts are disappointed and in this market, the slightest rumor or earnings problems causes a massive psychotic selling episode <g>.

I am concerned though about a potential LACK of pent up demand for EFII products. I have noted that EFII's receivables are increasing significantly faster than sales as of late.

12/97-12/98 Receivables +86%
12/98-12/99 Receivables +42%.
Sales increased +19% and +32% respectively. Could this be a case of channel stuffing? If so, how long will it take for demand to return?

I don't own any EFII currently but I have managed to lose money on it in the past (dang it). I'm reconsidering a buy but will watch it for awhile longer before coming to a conclusion.
