Tech Stocks in Motion

Shares of WPCS International (WPCS) were among technology's losers Monday, falling 13% after the company swung to a fourth-quarter loss.

The wireless engineering services company reported a loss of $295,603, or 8 cents a share, on sales of $11.1 million. A year ago, the company earned $310,140, or 16 cents a share, on sales of $8.2 million. For all of fiscal 2005, the company reported a loss of $85,282, or 3 cents a share, on sales of $40.1 million. During fiscal 2004 the company reported a loss of $124,187, or 8 cents a share, on sales of $22.1 million. "Although our net loss improved over the prior fiscal year, management is not satisfied with these results. WPCS managed over 800 projects in FY2005 and if it were not for an increase in costs of $1.2 million in five specific projects we would have had a much better earnings year," the company said.

Looking ahead, WPCS International reaffirmed its fiscal 2006 earnings guidance of $2.4 million, or 58 cents a share, on sales of $48 million. Shares were trading down $1 to $6.48.
