I can't believe how many people are whining about FFIV's PR not putting out a release on this so-called "news" in the Seattle paper.
Give me a break! It was just a couple of sentences in an article in some local newspaper. FFIV probably doesn't even know about it. Do you think a company is going to respond to or reiterate every damn thing that every little newspaper or magazine across the country writes about them? Geez, maybe they should put out a press release that someone on the Yahoo message board said FFIV will be a 10 bagger by the end of the year.
Not to mention, on this particular bit of "news" I think it would be a really big mistake to come out with a national press release saying "Guess what world, we just passed Cisco!" That's nothing but trash talking. A company PR department should stick to business matters: reporting on new deals, partnerships, customers, earnings prospects, etc.
