      • FEYE is acquiring Mandiant for over $! billion and it looks like that acquisition has left SYMC with a black-eye and SYMC has a big gap/vacuum when it tries to pitch against FEYE ... SYMC seems to be lacking a functional/optimal physical/virtual security appliance ...

        Now SYMC probably have two options ... dissolve into oblivion or buy out FTNT and step up to the plate ... but does SYMC executives have the sense to relize that and have the guts to act ... may have to wait and see ...

        FTNT has a proven ans successful FortiGate physical / virtual appliances that provide security and networking functions, including firewall, VPN, application control, antivirus, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, anti-spam, and also WAN acceleration ... and area where SYMC is having a big handicap ...

        Is it worth holding GRPN which is above its median PPS target of $11.00 ... won't it be wise to sell GRPN and buy FTNT for a 2x probability, especially with FEYE acquiring Mandiant ...

    • Time and tide never waits for anyone ...

      Won't it be wise to sell GRPN which is above it's PPS of $11, and buy FTNT for a better 2x probability ...
