Dear Investor, I'm writing to expose the biggest lie in technology today... I'm talking about the so-called "glut" of fiber optic cable. Here's the REAL story: WHEN the World Trade Center got hit, the Internet slowed down -- very noticeably slowed down. In fact, it nearly came to a grinding halt! That means there isn't nearly enough capacity or redundancy built into the system to accommodate a blip in demand. Sources tell me that the government is very worried about this problem. After all, this is the second time it's happened. Back in July, a tunnel fire in Baltimore slowed the Internet to a crawl for two full days. That means our communications systems -- and therefore our economy -- are very, very vulnerable. Ten years ago, it wouldn't have mattered. But today, commerce and security is COMPLETELY DEPENDENT on those systems. Virtually nothing moves without it. That's how banks and brokerages transfer funds...how dispatchers route fleets of trucks...how many Americans get paid through direct deposit. And we are closer to the BREAKING POINT than 99.9% of Americans even begin to understand. Here's one example. Qwest -- one of America's biggest carriers -- recently said they're 60% loaded on their network. That doesn't sound too bad...until you understand how these networks operate. You can't load a network much past 65%. In fact, 70% is virtually CATASTROPHIC -- because the network spends so much time searching for open channels, it doesn't spend any time actually sending packets of information. The system locks. Communications stops. The nation comes to a standstill. AMERICA IS FALLING BEHIND the rest of the developed world. Internet traffic systems currently run faster in Australia, Europe and even South America. That's because we push out more data than everyone else -- but we're not increasing capacity at anywhere near the needed rate. . BUT WHY do we have this capacity problem amidst a "fiber glut?" Because 95% of all the fiber that has ever been laid is "dark" -- that is, it's not activated. And the company I'm recommending is the #1 supplier of the components needed to do the job. I'm looking at a DOUBLE -- possibly a TRIPLE by this time next year. And I fully expect to multiply our money five-times over by 2007. In fact, this stock truly has "ten-bagger" potential! Sincerely, Michael Murphy TECHNOLOGY INVESTING P.S. The longer you wait, the more profits you MISS OUT on. This stock has a long ways to run -- but it's already UP 43% since October 1st, in recognition of this company's vital new role in national security. Dark fiber does no good. Actual carrying capacity is strained to the limits. And get this -- data traffic is DOUBLING every year now. That means a network running at 63% of capacity needs to double its load by this time next year just to keep up. That's why the fiber must be lit. That's why the fiber will be lit.

Murphy is an idiot. He had a big contrarian/bear newsletter during the super bull market in tech. If you had listened to him, you would have lost your shirt. My dad noticed how he was always wrong (his brother subscribed to the newsletter) and took the opposite position on all of Murphy's recommendations. I cannot talk to my dad about the stock market without hearing that story over and over again. My dad made a lot of money. If Murphy is telling you to buy fiber optics stocks, past experience would say this is a good time to sell.

Sounds like murphy has a lot of stock to unload, so he's hyping it up to attract buyers.

A lot of these newsletter writers dont even trade stocks. They just sell tips.

it's dopey. there are masses of dark fiber that can be lit up easily, which means there will be a glut of capacity on the market for a very long time. fiber optic tarrif rates have fallen by 90% or more on some links such as NY-LA.

PUKE !!!!!!!!!!!

Murphy and a few other insiders acquired a lot of stock to unload. Yep, he's definitely hyping to attract buyers. (I wonder what the real float is on this company ?? Bet it's small, real small.)

Is junk mail at its finest, maybe SPAM?

Thnks guys. I should have clarified the question(s). The obvious over-hype(you should see the stuff I deleted), how accurate are the technical aspects of the arguement? 95% of F.O. are dark? Does 1 or (a few) company(ies), have a position to benefit directly and soley from the cable being activated?
