I don't see this listed anywhere, ZaksDad, can you give us a pointer?

Orangeblood - Tried to send the link to you, but I believe that it can only be accessed by AOL subscribers. It was a link to and when I access it through my ISP at work I can not get the same synopsized income information. Then I pulled out my trusty Q from the period ended 12/26/99 and see that the same number that marketguide lists as non-operating income is reported in the Q as Net Interest Earned.

This amount of Net Interest Earned is almost 10x the amount for the year ago period. I assume that this is because CREE has a lot of cash and is investing for the short term (at least until their new buildings are built and the cash is spent).

My only thought was whether this should be backed out when comparing the Q over Q performance of CREE. I guess it is my process to look at operating income since I want the companies that I invest in to be profitable from operations.

I always enjoy your posts and look forward to your opinion on this matter.
