Read the article and take your own conclusions... excerpt last pgrph. "Life Technologies is still a long way from winning the DNA market from Illumina, or, for that matter, from winning the Archon Genomic X Prize, which will award $10 million to the first team to “rapidly, accurately and economically sequence 100 whole human genomes to an unprecedented level of accuracy.” This machine, not even delivered yet, is not there yet. But it is keeping alive the race to sequence DNA quickly and cheaply, and to make DNA sequencing an important part of medicine. And that’s a very big deal."
Now bashers can claim we'll go to Mars next years on a banana ship....but the bottom line still remains...ILMN is the Undiscussed leader in a fast growing and challenging market.
ILMN making better faster and cheaper one, I do not understand the price action. As for the earning Yahoo boad amde a mistake and posted earning date as Jan 09, 2012 and since it has been corrected to Feb. 06, 2012.I think during the day the price will correct, well I hope so.
