But that it came to a PROFIT MARGIN of 8%... Which is less than a majority of the other companies doing business.Good point! One of the investing guidelines TMF extolled (maybe they still do) was that you want to look for net profit margins above 7%. Now 8% is above 7%, but not by much. There are many, many other companies with net profit margins well above 8% (Microsoft's net profits dwarf this number). So that number really doesn't impress me all that much, even if it is a record when it comes to dollar amounts. It's the percentages that really matter, and they never really point those out when they're on these rants, do they?Mike
