As you can tell, not many people follow CIEN. It's a volatile stock. The reason it's going up now is the press fromm AT&T. That means bad press from AT&T can drag it down.
Realistically CIEN's revenue is not completely dependant on AT&T. I'm in manufacturing and our goal is a 10% margin of profit. With the economy, we're taking a 7% margin these days. So to answer your question, I'd figure on an 8% margin of profit to determine the bottom line profit to CIEN. Remember, you want to look at profit numbers, not revenue numbers. This recession has played havoc with margins with some companies making small margins just to keep the business.
After this nice run, i cashed out and will enter again after this fiscal cliff mess is resolved. AMCC is solid, but the run is being hampered by our wonderful representatives in Washington.
Sentiment: Strong Sell

I was watching the trades on Scottrade and already closed out the window. However, if you go to this link, you can set the time to the last one or five minutes and you will see the trade. GLTA
I've been quietly accumulating this stock and it keeps ticking up slowly. I like that. Nice even gains every week. Another 45,000 shares were bought at Ask right after the one above. This stock might break out soon.
It will depend on how quickly GTHP can sell units outside the US. If we can build momentum and sales start coming in, a whole new slew of investors will enter GTHP. Once the new FDA date is set, then the run-up will begin. Patience.
The key is not to panic. When I saw my net value of my account this morning, I wanted to scream. But you have to get past the initial panic and think long term. I was hoping for a large profit today last week. Now I'm looking at a large profit in six months. Patience.
I picked up 25,000 shares at .48505. I'm in this for the long haul. GTHP is oversold now with shorts covering this afternoon, it should go to .84 and close around .81 today. Maybe more. GTHP should be back in .90's withing 60 days and then begin the slow ascent again to 1.40.
$1.49 on Friday. Low of .43 this morning. Based on other stocks that have hit the FDA wall, I'm thinking 60 days to be back in the .90 range.
