re: The David Huber Game Stick to the movies.

Shall we also look at the "value" of EVERY network and derive the same conclusion that you came to?

re: The David Huber Game Go ahead, there is no reason network equipment should lose all of its value within two years. If so, it should be rented, not purchased - there is no reason to acquire an asset that is immediately worthless, as Corvis switches have proven to be at its largest customer.

Seeing your picture I realized that you are a very young person. You can be my grandson.
Could you please help my old eyes and post links for similar articles about CIENA.
About Corvis there are dozens...

Word! What better way to keep up appearances than to buy 'em back and have a go at it yourself. I get the notion of his action, I applaud his "Huberis", and I think it is one of the most ridiculous ideas that I've heard lately.

Economics 101, my friends. Simply having neato technology doesn't mean that it will generate any revenue, as Broadwing so painfully discovered. Why are we as an industry so enamoured of technology for technology's sake?

I predict a spectacular flame-out within 12 months. "Gee, look honey, what a beautiful sunset!" "No dear, that's just Huber's latest venture burning like a tire fire in a Newark dump."

re: The David Huber Game

My first paragraph was meant to be serious. The money spent on Dorsal would have been better spent on McDonalds Franchises (as an example). At least this would have provided revenue and profit to fund the rest of the business.

The second paragraph was meant to be a bit of humor around Mr. Huber's ego. How many engineers with PhDs have you meant that use Dr. in their normal conversations? Very few in my history and Mr. Huber is one of them. His ego has doomed Corvis.

Let me use a trivial example. The Supercomm booth that Corvis had last year was huge. Was this because there were many companies to market the products to that had never heard of Corvis? Was this the best use of the shareholder's money?

There aren't these types of conflicts of interest with Ciena management. With Corvis, there are dozens. Do you see now, old woman?

Stop blaming LR for your own investing mistakes...

re: The David Huber Game lol...I have a huge investment in Ciena. This is not the case here.
I would like to read articles based on objective research and not on the amount of money one company spends for advertisement. In my case (being an investor in both companies) I don't believe them in both cases --
when they badmouth Corvis on a permanent basis as well as when they glorify Ciena.
And YES, I read LR. WHY - because of their entertaining articles. They are in a way the "Saturday night live" of the Optical industry.

re: The David Huber Game That's what you get for putting money into Potemkin companies like Corvis.
