I'm looking for a long-term hold not a trader.
I'm assuming you mean RCI.NV.B ? What I've noticed about this one is, for a number of years the analysts' earnings estimates start out good, then get revised down, and finally end in real losses. Also, the balance sheet (4Q'05) shows tangible book value per diluted share of NEGATIVE $6.90. Both of these are big red flags to me, and as a result I don't own it and wouldn't touch it.
That being said, what matters now is forward earnings, as you asked about. If they could deliver consistent positive earnings ... who knows. Because of the above factors though, I haven't followed them very closely and so have no feeling for their business prospects.
