J.M. Peters Co. Inc., the Newport Beach home builder, said profits dropped to $3.5 million in the second quarter on housing sales of $56.6 million, compared to $7.3 million in profits on $86.1 million in sales last year. The lower earnings disappointed stock analysts, who had projected profits of as much 75 cents a share earlier this year. That was far higher than the 25 cents a share the company actually earned in its fiscal second quarter, which ended Aug. 31.
