I don't believe change for changes sake will make a bit of difference. Russo and the rest don't really matter. I sincerely believe that the U.S. Economy, the World Economy, and the Tech Industry as a whole (not to exclude the Stock Market "Insider" factions) are the real combined culprits here.
I'm sticking with this whether Russo remains at the helm or some other non-entity takes her place. I think time will prove me right, and as a LONG I can afford to wait this one out. The key here is "patience" not blind uninformed foolish faith, but educated patience.
Just for the record, I own a flat 60,000 shares of LUCENT and will likely grab more if it continues to drop. Based on my own extensive research it is a steal if you are a LONG. If you are a SHORT, then dump and run away as fast as you can, as it will drag you straight down for at least another 6-8 months.
Hey Brenda, per our discussion, this is my two cent's. If you get this, then you have your answer.
Good Luck to you either way!

I enjoyed them all.
P.S. LUCENT is a BUY if you are a LONG. If you are a SHORT then walk away NOW.
