some consollidation is only healthy at this point, with a few dips along the way for MM's to fill their last part of their inventory quotas and subsequently higher pps to the tune of $22-$23. if yearly chart doesn't constitute consistency in emc's growth then stairstepping definition needs redefining.
Your word consistency prompted me to respond. I have been with EMC since 1994 and have watched it move consistently upward. I purchased in the 18s back then and have seen this stock move ever higher.It has been very good to me. If you want to make big money then this stock is the one to have. Look at the charts in the 90s and look at them now. this is the second launch to the moon and I hope you all enjoy the ride also. Chow!
With a big drop from 104 to 3.67 in between what you describe as the "move consistently upward". Anyone who thinks this stock is going to the moon is dreaming. Those days are gone. There are no dynamics to support that.
