    I have always been perplexed by the fact that INFN was supposed to have hands down the best technology from what I keep reading so if that is the case why wouldn't a CSCO who is sitting on $50 billion in cash snap them up? It wouldn't faze them at all and their have been times in the last 18 months they could have picked up the company for 1.25 billion, now maybe 1.75-2.0 billion but in either case a drop in the bucket for them. As a non technical (at least when it comes to optical networking) person it makes me wonder if INFN really has the superior product.

    CSCO has made a conglomerate out of buying up other companies, by my count over 100 with a market cap of greater than $100 million so they obviously are not shy about buying out another company if they like their technology.

    I don't think so. Personally if you have a list of companies with 15% growth selling at a PE of 20 I would like to see it as ideas for an investment. One of the allures here is that KMX has the ability to get to a scale that will be severely disruptive to all of their competitors. I would think that with 500K plus transactions a year they can pin point the EXACT price point they want to pay for a car in each market they are in. Think Wal Mart Scaled
