Don't waste your time or cloud your thinking by sulking over a stock that "went down." Instead, know the scoreboard, stay disciplined and get back in the box. This will allow you to maximize your successes.
Information Is Everything
Information is the currency of today's global economy. Individuals and enterprises rely on the global distribution and storage of information to govern nations, conduct business transactions and make personal decisions. Yet the information we count on is increasingly at risk. Cyber threats, natural disasters, user errors and system failures put the security and availability of crucial information assets in jeopardy. Individuals and organizations are looking for a partner to help them understand and manage the risks to information -- whether it is protecting personal information on a PC or building a global IT infrastructure that is both resilient and flexible. For many, that partner is Symantec ( SYMC), the world leader in helping individuals and enterprises assure the security, availability and integrity of their information. Headquartered in Cupertino, Calif., Symantec has operations in more than 40 countries. With innovative technology solutions and services, Symantec helps individuals and enterprises protect and manage their digital assets. Symantec provides a wide range of solutions, including enterprise and consumer security, data management, application and infrastructure management, security management, storage and service management, and response and managed security services. Symantec is the world leader in providing solutions to help individuals and enterprises assure the security, availability and integrity of their information. Symantec's recently completed merger with Veritas leaves no doubt: Symantec is the best security software company in the world. The announcement of the Veritas merger started a prolonged decline in Symantec shares that I believe culminated earlier this month when the company lowered its revenue guidance and announced the resignation of its CFO.
