While this is all my own opinion, it is entirely the truth. There is no refuting the FACT that Symantec is the greatest company in the history of the world. It is the BEST, period. Simply because you've missed the start of the current run up which I believe will last multiple years and reach untold of heights, doesn't mean you need to constantly try to bash the company, longterm tech investor guy.
You should try going outside every once in a while instead of constantly trash talking Symantec. IMHO the shares are NOT overpriced and NOT overhyped. This is going to be a long ride to the moon and beyond. Steve Bennett and Symantec 4.0 will simply NOT TOLERATE OR ALLOW FAILURE. Just look at the current restructuring - there really aren't any bad managers at Symantec I personally feel. Any that were lousy have long been weeded out. But when you have such an overabundance of top talent, rock star caliber quality, it means even the B, B+, and yes even some A- quality people are redundant and have to be either reassigned, or if no position could work for them in the new Symantec org, then they have to be released into the wild. When practically every employee particularly in management is a superstar, then there are very few overachieving superstars because everyone is "average" at an A level. I have spoken with many directors recently some of whom will not be at the company in a couple of weeks, unfortunately. They are fantastic, all of them, and with the talent level that Symantec has, with the proper management structure finally in place to harness that incredible talent, this company is like a rocket ship just starting its takeoff. Symantec is Number One Company very very great!
