<< I know that there has been a lot of discussion on this board and Rat's board questioning if the huge run up of QCOM late last year and early this year was indeed a true tornado. My question is would that have actually been a false tornado since, as I understand it, the 3G tornado has not currently begun? If this were true, wouldn't that have been a false tornado since it appeared to be based on the prospect of what was to come when 3G wireless comes to fruition? >>

I think a lot of people confuse growth in stock price with growth in revenue...the colossal run-up in Qualcomm's stock price last year did not in itself represent any sort of tornado; in fact, it was the growth in CDMA that signaled a tornado.

Business before pleasure, eh?
