Hello fellow Fools,

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend.

Since JDSU is the dominant player is the fibre optic feild, how lightly should this king be held?

It seems clear that no new technology will come in and change things overnight. It also seems that JDSU should have a good run for at least the next 12 to 18 months, and that's probably conservative.

According to the manual, you should check the company's quarterly report, if it continues to beat analysts estimates, no problem. A true gorilla can miss estimates and still overcome the temporary setback.

If a king, like JDSU, misses estimates, what would be the proper move? Sell all shares and move on to another upcomer, gorilla or the like?

Like I said, it's probably going to be a while, I'm just curious.

Thanks to all and have a great week,
stibbles :)
