Quite amazing to see this group surge so quickly to 52 week highs. This is almost one third of our long portfolio. Another reason to buy “relative strength” on dips…. but certainly one would not expect this type of action a week and a half after the market was being crushed.
F5 Networks (FFIV)
Acme Packet (APKT)
Polypore International (PPO)
Tibco Software (TIBX)
Now the tough question is when do you take the next round of profits, knowing you can leave quite a bit on the table if the market continues a “V” shape, low volume bounce so popular from summer 09 to spring 10. There are worse decisions to be faced with of course.
(as an aside, it appears Acme Packet is up due to a 2nd derivative “competitor’s” earnings report)
