Ooops. Sorry. I forgot in your world you want companies to wait to the end of the quarter to buy companies, offer new services, and add worth, because then you would call them 'profitable'. So no, you're wrong. Acquisitions count for some things and not for others. Some call things profitable if their capital gains and income outway outgoings, some ignore capital gains. Either way you look at it is semantic, though - Redhat have made money, are selling enough products to pay for what they do, etc. You're also forgetting that income from bought companies tends not to topple over in various measures to the company that acquired them until a quarter (or even two) later. Luckily you're not an investment banker, because that professsion works on less simplistic grounds.
