Why not go on a broadband company ?
Terayon (Nasdaq: TERN) for example ???


I think current Rule Maker portfolio member JDS Uniphase certainly fits the description as a "broadband" company, but that doesn't mean we couldn't go out and get another one.

As for Terayon, here is a snapshot of some of the financial data I pulled from the Hoovers website for September 1999:

Total Sales ~$75 million (TTM)
Gross Margins 26%
Net Margins less than 0%
Cash/Debt No Debt! (surprisingly)
Flow Ratio ~3.6

Since Terayon fails the Rule Maker criterion in just about all of these categories, I think you might want to go reread the official list of Rule Maker criteria before suggesting another stock for the portfolio. The criteria can be found at the following link:

Just my two cents.
