Thanks RugbyGuy07, your reply was helpful in my endeavor to integrate all the new factoids loose in my brain.

Ryan, you did good too, except for "I/S" which left me feeling "gob-smacked".

Incidentally, I'm still not sure how best to think of the goodwill created when say JDSU acquired SDL. The share price of both has dropped a lot, so perhaps the
value of the goodwill on the books isn't indicative. OTOH, perhaps it is, since certainly JDSU could have issued a bunch of shares for cash, and bought SDL for cash.
JMLS, I may not understand the point you are making here. I didn't think stock price was (short term) indicative of anything related to management or operations success. Can you make a simple explaination to bring me on board?

Thanks all
