Hey do your other companies have an Emmy? Well HLIT does.

Yes the valuation sucks, but with current qtr growth estimates of 550.0% who cares ;-) Seriously I'm only recing this as it has been in my real portfolio since May 04 and it's way overdue for a review. This rec should force me to do that. After a quick look the other reason is I reckon it deserves more than two stars in this crazy CAPS world. This baby provides the balance to my NFLX holding, both could succeed, but if NFLX goes down HLIT will be the one providing the technology to do it.
