    Arrowpoint is replacing f5

    I work for one of the major ISP's on the West
    coast that f5 claims to have as a client. We kicked
    them out months ago and replaced them with Arrowpoint
    switches. f5's boxes are too slow and their engineers are a
    pain in the ass.

    • THE SUMMER STOCK rally could pick up more steam
      next week as earnings and economic data pour in.

      On the economic front, three reports will get most
      of the attention. Two inflation indicators, the
      producer price index and the consumer price index, will be
      reported before the market opens Wednesday and Thursday,
      respectively. Brian Jones, an economist at Salomon Smith
      Barney/Citibank, says these reports will show that inflation
      remained tame last month. He figures that the PPI and CPI
      rose just 0.1% in June, reflecting increases in food
      prices and flat energy prices.

      The third report,
      on June retail sales, will be released Wednesday
      before the market opens. Jones sees retail sales rising
      just 0.1% (excluding autos), but says that this
      estimate could be low considering the strong sales gains
      reported Thursday by most retailers. But even a more
      robust report would probably still represent a slowdown
      in retail sales from May, when they were up 1%,
      Jones says. "These reports should give the bond market
      a lift," he says, since they would give more
      evidence that the economy can power ahead without
      inflation. And when bond prices go higher, stocks usually
      follow suit.

      Friday's report on industrial
      production should also give more evidence that economic
      growth is strong. That is an index that measures the
      output of the country's factories, mines and utilities.
      Mark Zandi, chief economist at Regional Financial
      Associates, expects the index to rise 0.2% for June, the same
      rate as in May.

      The big event for the markets
      will be on July 22, when Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
      Greenspan speaks before the House Banking Committee. Zandi
      expects Greenspan to reiterate his concerns about the
      tight labor market and accelerating inflation.

    • and more weeks to follow, earning is due July 20th.
      Life is good!
