Life is speculation. If you view investing as "betting," then any investment is highly speculative.

Well, what I really meant is that it's much more speculative than others. I think this has to do with 2 things: first of all, there are alot of loyal Linux users who bought RHAT and hold it; and that market on the whole assumes that RHAT is somewhat like Microsoft of Linux and has some milder level of control over it, therefore translating every positive news about Linux into RHAT direct benefit.

Otherwise, thanks for undermining my self-confidence with well-researched critique :-)
