Thanks, <br /> I missed the CC due to a mess of computer problems which put all my PCs out of commission ( AT&T modem problems )...but am back up on all now. <br /> It looked pretty dim for the Techies in general last week, except for Friday's miniscule uptick, but do believe we should hold pretty well going forward. Quite a few of the CEOs still are skeptical with the general geo-political and economic situation around the U.S. and Europe.....so I really am not expecting any miracles. I do expect the next quarters earnings round to pick up their spirits a wee bit as well as perhaps generate a wee bit more trading interest by the general public. <br /> I agree with your comment also, that actually, this weakness might just make them as well as others, a better buyout target. I am expecting the heightened M&A activity to continue this year. <br /> One can always hope that it will affect us also and beneficially. <br /> I'm just not holding my breath as to any of the equities on the big boards, unless it's commodities.....I think inflation is going to do a real number on numerous aspects of our lives in the next two years or so.
