Maybe I am not the only one thinking this but, I'm not too fond of Dr Z and his advertising. What a schmuck!

Let me tell you that a 3.9% gain in REVENUE is huge for a company that size. Not sure how the sales figures will play into that, but that gain is no small potatoes. The trick is making it a consistent figure.
