    So, CSCO is positive because of a few acquisitions. JUPR is flat and others are in bad shape.
    BRCD with its low PE is putting out amazing numbers quarter after quarter.
    Current BRCD share prices are XMAS gifts for the share holders.

    • Which one is more important, cash or growth.
      I go for growth since keeping cash, especially for tech stocks without invention will do nothing.
      Big ones like CSCO acquire other smaller companies to show growth but small companies have to invent all the time to grow the revenue.
      BRCD is getting more in software areas and that is the area BRCD can grow much faster.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • For the last time!! All your numbers don't mean a thing at the moment. Brocade is a small cap stock which needs to find a niche outside of its present product(s) in order to acquire investment interest and achieve growth to or about midcap status. The stock price is FLAT, going nowhere and will remain so until the end of the year and perhaps beyond. Several events have to occur before you may see a pleasant spike in share price which will compete with its competition for daily/weekly gains. If there is no compromise with the White House, the market is going to tumble and take a long, long time to recuperate.
