Many good comments on stock research have been posted here. I've appreciated everyones honest perspective in recognizing up and comming stiock candidates. In particular I like to think of those qualities that initially attracted me to CHKP.
Talking of stock recommondations, IBD highlighted yesterday the stock I offered (with qualifications)here in the end of year "Next CHKP" pole. At the time it was $10-$12 and subsequently ran to $60+ before now pulling back to $34. ITWO is its industry leader having leapfroged MANU onto the web.
It would have been very foolish to announce a split during the bloodbath the nas is going through. Next week or the week after would be a much better time to cut the price in half. Right now the overall fell of the nas is doing a good job cutting down the good and bad techs regardless of the fundamentals of individual stocks. I was just happy we crushed the numbers and set ourselves up for the next runup......whenever that will be. STAYING LONG FOREVER!!!!!!!!!
