Q. "Could someone explain why the price of OCLI has skyrocketed recently?"
A. possibly, though i've been incorrect before

Q."Is it the planned merger with JDSU?"
A. absolutely. jdsu is a dominant player in a cutting edge market (fiber optic systems, the stuff all out 'net and telecom systems run through). telecom stocks and net stocks have been out of sight recently, but they couldn't exist without infrastructure - which is jdsu's bag of candy.

Observation: "And even though the price has leapt upward, the volume hasn't been exceptionally large."
Speculation: since jdsu and ocli are essentially synonomous, i suspect most people are buying in at the source (ie jdsu). also, late buyers into ocli are not guaranteed jdsu shares - but, having made that cut, i confess i haven't been paying attention to when that date is. if you are contemplating getting in on the action, i'd probably go straight to jdsu.

Gratitude:"Thanks."
Disclaimer: no problem. just remember cheap free advice is just that.

good luck
