You are absolutely right about Smith Barney. My broker used to work for them and left to join another company because he couldn't stand their manipulative tactics. They downgraded E-Bay from a buy to a sell in one day. After it sold off,it went steadily up and is up over four dollars today. Lucent will rebound, too. Stay the course.
Oh, I'm not going anywhere. A pullback is definitely healthy, but for those CROOKS to benefit like they have and will, it pi$$es me off. This sector has been so beaten down over the past 3 years, a run-up like we have seen is not so suprising.
