    Last year’s actual EPS, $1.67, Estimize’s projection, $2.23, is a gain of $.56 or 33%.

      WS consensus EPS on Estimize is $2.17. WS consensus on PED’s Smackdown is 2¢ higher ($2.19). Hitting $2.23 (I’m at $2.24) would be a stronger surprise. Looking for a goodly post-earnings bump I am.

      Same place all the drones went when Tim Cook decided to crack down on the nuisance they made of themselves?

      It will be interesting to see who doesn’t get invited to the Q part of the Q&A during today’s earnings call.
