Subject:  why difference in earnings statements? Date:  1/29/2004  9:49 AM

Can someone explain to me why the current earnings per share are different on the estimates and the snapshot windows? for example, AWE lists earnings of .14 on snapshot, but current year estimate of -.04 in estimates window. Is it so we can see how far off the reality and the projection were? Or are these different animals, and I'm reading things wrong. I know, I should take the "cracking the code" course. Or is this a real "duh" and should I go back to mutual funds and not outsmart myself?
