re: LR Index Update: Fed's Impact Minimal
We can no longer get a reaonsable explaination from the investors' actions these days.

Nothing will make them satisfy. They have already "expected" a .50 pt cut. So, if the fed cut by .25, the investors would definitely not be please; the Fed cut by .50, they expected more, a .75; but if the fed cut by .75, then they would come up with lame reasons like, "oh, the economy is really in a bad shape, or the fed would not have cut by this much..."

Well, I guess it is the 21st century, people don't have to have a reason for their actions...

I think the investors are just waiting for the optical networking tree to shed all the failed startups( corv, ironbridge etc) and focus on the a company ( cien, rbak,fibr, onis) that will provide both revenue and profitability.

re: LR Index Update: Fed's Impact Minimal
When the gov. cuts interest rates, its always too late. The economy is like a big heavy wheel. A cut in interest rates applies a little grease to the axle. If the grease comes when it slows down, it it will take a while to speed up again. It will also be a while before the idiots can agree on a tax cut. Get ready for a hard winter and possibly an empty stocking next Christmas!!!
