not even higher, it's a matter of increasing
visibility... BRCD is one of their partners. I'm not surprised
at all, good to see IBD mentioning that.
Take a look through their website materials.. you'll
see what i mean.

November as part of 3Com's bid to move to SAN

While other stocks run ahead on awfull
fundamentals, DTLK just treads water on great ones.
just can't figure it, except having the most inept
underwriters imaginable. Underwriters who couldn't even be
bothered by giving a great company some good press
Is someone holding this thing back, or does no one
A high growth stock in a greatly
expanding field and at a market cap = yearly

Market volume is still extremely light. Perhaps

In the first hour just about 151 million shares
traded on the NYSE. That compares with 186 million on
Friday and 171 million on Thursday. Simply no buying
interest at the moment.
If a new and inexperienced guy like me
sees a brain like Plyka into this stock that gets my
attention. Plus the coverage in IBD also turned my antennae.
I'm in at 14. What is everyone's short and long term
