Hey Fools,

As you probably know, I am not an analyst at the Fool for RB, HG, or MDP. Still, for transparency, I'm announcing my intent to sell some of my shares of INFN. I'll still hold onto a portion of my shares.

Why sell? I previously said that I had intended on waiting the cycle out a bit further before deciding what to do with my shares. I've been feeling pessimistic lately. It's been a rec for a long time, and PICS don't seem to be having the effect that we expected in terms of market share and reliable profitability. Sure, they're great, but competitive products appear to be good enough too.

Anyway, if you hadn't heard, I was in a car accident. Freeway. A drunk driver swerved in front of me. We went off the road. I hit a tree almost straight on going 70mph. As you might guess, my car no longer exists. I still do. Surprise! (The other people at fault are ok too)

I need a new car. I decided to fund some of the purchase by selling stock. INFN was one of the candidates. I also sold shares of some other companies too.

Fool On!
