 From one of the umpteen Enron articles, "The key to understanding its
collapse is contained in its annual report for 2000. The company, the
report says, "is laser-focused on earnings per share (EPS), and we expect
to continue strong earnings performance."

I am assuming it means being focused upon something as a laser would focus
on a target - giving it more emphasis than merely "focusing." But, I need
proof. Anyone know of any?
