Here are a few of the questions Jim responded to:

  • Back in January you spoke of MRV Communications (MRVC) and one of its divisions, Luminent, which was a possible spinoff candidate. I did the research and it seemed a good possibility. I picked up a small position and have held it since. In March, several large funds picked up a position in the stock, but outside of that there isn't much happening. Luminent continues to come out with new products and I would think that a spinoff in a good market would be better than in a bad market. How long should one hold a spinoff candidate?
