To my surprise, according to www.nasdaq.com JDSU has been profitable all year, which is directly contrary to MF charts and even the 10-Q of JDSU (which also posted a loss).

This difference basically comes down to how you view merger related charges (e.g., acquired in-process R&D, amortization). If you leave them in, then JDUS is not profitable. If you exclude them it is. Personally, I exclude them as explained in this post: http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?id=1030004002519000&sort=postdate
