What are JDSU's current and projected earnings?

It depends who you ask. After the Rule Maker added JDSU to its portfolio it caught my eye as a possible candidate to my personal portfolio, but before I made any buy orders I was going to do some thorough research. First I looked up JDSU using the MF's "Quote & Data." I checked its "earnings per share" which were -1.85. Fair enough. Next I wanted to see its past earnings and future projections, for this task I chose which has simple yet detailed charts. To my surprise, according to 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).

Hmm... does the have a secret alliance with JDSU to artificially inflate its price and consequentiely inflate the nasdaq. All this my merely attracting naive investers with false profits. Maybe... But maybe someone else has a Foolish take on this puzzling error.
