    It's Showtime for Allot Communications - The Motley Fool

    January 31, 2013 - Motley Fool - This is the kind of thing that confuses the heck out of me. In a world of information and mis-information, how do you reconcile the below with recent inferences that Allot Communications' results are going to be flat or begative? Not a rhetorical question ... I really have no idea how such conflicting messages can co-exist in the same universe.! ?????????????????????????
