Quiksilver Inc., one of California's larger designers and marketers of surf wear, reported Tuesday that it returned to profitability in its latest fiscal quarter. Analysts said the company's performance exceeded expectations. The company, based in Costa Mesa, said it earned $1.5 million, or 23 cents a share, for its second fiscal quarter, which ended April 30. That was off 55% from a profit of $3.3 million, or 52 cents a share, for the same three-month period a year earlier. Sales totaled $28.

Jamaican Style Inc. of Fountain Valley, a 10-year-old company owned by Jerry Goeden, had three of its suits appear in the magazine's best-selling issue of the year. That development is probably lost on most of the magazine's readers, but it's considered a huge honor--and big business builder--in the fashion industry.
