I was just wondering: Can someone explain the difference between a "Gorilla" and a "Lumbering Giant."

I have not actually read The Gorilla Game, so for all I know this question might be really simple or really complex to answer.

The reason I'm asking is because I own stock in Vodafone (VOD), and I'm beginning to wonder if Wallstreet views VOD as a lumbering giant. VOD keeps getting bigger or making new moves, yet its stock price doesn't seem to be following. Sometimes it seems as though Wallstreet rewards small nimble companies more than lumbering giants.

So is VOD a gorilla, with huge potential for increased shareholder value? Or is VOD a slow, bumbling giant, that probably won't reward shareholders much over the next couple years?

I'll probably ask this on the VOD board, but I thought I'd try here first.

I welcome any comments, general ones or VOD related ones.

Thanks in advance
