worthy of more of a move than this. Given the options pressure to close this stock at $22.50 -- if you have an options monitor, you will see the cluster around the October $22.50 strike -- you might believe that the quarter wasn't as good as people think.
You would be wrong if you believed that. This company has consistently done well, and continually had battled
in a positive, sharetaking way. Yet no one seems to believe in the company or Scott Kriens, its excellent CEO.
I know, it sells at 31 times earnings so you probably think I'm being way too negative by saying that nobody believes. But when you lay the last five years of earnings and revenue growth over the performance of the stock, you see that this is a company that has been punished for way too long and deserves to trade more like
and less like Cisco.
I think you can take advantage of the power of this expiration to wreck stocks -- can you believe how powerful it is? -- to pick up some Juniper at $22.50. The business is just doing too well to ignore.
Something else you can't ignore: James Altucher's new service, TheStreet.com Internet Review.
