    OT: ZOOM

    What do you guys think of ZOOM? They are just coming out
    of some tough times, just profitable again, and have
    re-focused from selling dial-up modems to all emerging
    technologies. I love their tech - what do you guys think
    of their financials?

    • Honestly, no stock is worth touching until it surpasses its all-time high, which means this stock would have to go from 5.xx to 27.xx first.

      You can bet on a leader, or you can bet on an also-ran.

      TASR is a leader
      ZOOM is an also-ran

        Yikes. Do you realize that that strategy would have kept you out of just about everything this year? Even large, established companies are still not trading above their all-time highs after that huge drop in 2001-2002. Take Intel - you would have missed out on the run up from 25 to 53. Or Sandisk - run from Jan03-today: 15-69. TI and Cisco have both doubled in a year, and still aren't trading near highs. In fact at the beginning of this year (when most stocks were *very* cheap), there would have been very few stocks to invest in.

        I'm a fundementals investor, not a technicals investor, but even I can see that strategy is not wise.

        "You can bet on a leader, or you can bet on an also-ran."

        Or you can do the prudent thing, and stay diversified. This is not either-or. I fear for you if you have all your money in TASR. I'm firmly long on TASR - but as much as I'm in love with it, I don't keep all my money there.

        And you can also buy into leaders when they're down, and getting back on their feet. I made a fortune on Intel - and I would have totally missed out if I had waited to buy in till after it was at all-time highs.

        "TASR is a leader
        ZOOM is an also-ran"

        I think TASR has far more to go - but I also see alot of potential in companies that have restructured their product lines and come out strong.
