The company's earnings estimates are interesting. A big loss is expected in the current quarter ($0.74 per share), but next quarter a big $1.37 per share in earnings is expected, while $1.53 per share is expected for the fiscal year that ended at the end of March.

Then, in the fiscal year ended March 1998, $3.13 per share is expected. Only two analysts follow the stock. $3.13 from $1.53 is 104% estimated earnings growth next year.

The stock trades at 20 times this year's estimate and 9.5 times next year's. Apparently some strange costs are involved in this year's numbers.
