Whenever I think of the stock market, I picture of a bunch of rich old men in a suits standing around arguing about how much more money one has than the other and gambling on senseless things. Ever see that movie Rat Race?
Yesterday, Cisco's stock (CSCO) took a dive after a weak forecast during their earnings report. What does that mean? To me, it means share holders are upset because they were expecting to be more rich than they will be, so they retaliated by taking their ball and going home. Nothing new there.
For the rest of us though, there will still be networks to design, routers to configure, and problems to troubleshoot. Leave the jacuzzi filled with pepto for the weird ones.
