<<There is NO optic slowdown, it's FUD>>

S-Cat,

I'm playing the game the same way you are, but I'm a llittle more cautious.

FUD stands for FEAR, UNCERTAINTY, and DOUBT.

How do you know that the fear, uncertainty, and doubt surrounding the optics sector is unfounded? Long term we know the products will be in demand, but nobody knows how the cyclical economics of the market will play out.

I think to downplay it all as "FUD" and therefore not worth listening to is a dangerous game and suggests to me that the market has a lot more downside... obviously there are lots of investors out there who haven't learned their lesson yet. Even the new economy can experience downturns.
