INFN is a risk stock, and the market seems to be profoundly risk-averse right now. I think many are re-jiggering their portfolios with one eye on Europe and the other on the so-called "fiscal cliff", and one thing that is clear is that stocks like INFN are getting hit hard, day after day. Remember, though, that the market value on the stock today does not alter the realities of the company behind the scenes. The same sales force is on the road, the same engineers are tweaking the next iteration, the same management team is strategizing forward, the same cash balance remains in their coffers. So, if you own the company through the shares you possess, then all is still fine. However, if you own only the stocks that fluctuate up and down in value then these are pretty nasty times indeed.
