>>hear of anything else going on within the company... maybe a split?<<
Since I have no contacts within the company, I'm not qualified to answer that...and as for a split, while it may be important for the short term and could possibly be an interesting way for management to telegraph its confidence in its ongoing business, I really am much more interested in the actual execution of the business. I'll leave the speculation of a split to others.
>>Any recommendations of what options to buy on Monday?<<
Not being an options person, again I am not qualified to answer, but others on this thread may be able to help you. There are a number of people here that are involved in Ciena options. Regards
