"In addition to causing another 20 percent drop in company
market value -- company share prices have hovered in the $7.25
range since the announcement -- the earnings warning news also had
a significant secondary effect within an analyst community that has
stuck by the company throughout its rocky market performance."
"Monday, W.R. Hambrecht analyst Prakesh Patel finally decided to
downgrade the company to a 'market neutral' rating from 'buy' after
months of enthusiastic support."
"'With the company missing its projected revenue totals two
quarters in a row, they really have a credibility issue,' said
Patel. 'You really have trouble taking their word for what they're
going to hit next time.'"
