In a market that is so Cisco-dominated ( CSCO) -- and believe me, this is Cisco-dominated -- just the sheer possibility that someone might take Cisco shares on Sysco saying something positive required that our trader shout out the good news for the food broker. (By the way, we still call Cisco "Chisco" so as not to confuse it with Sysco.) Meanwhile the rumors of a negative accounting story about Cisco -- rumors that I know to be untrue -- dogged the stock momentarily again. I hate to sound like a Cisco Moonie, I would bet that when the SEC tries to steer people toward the right thing to do, they say, "Why don't you do it the Cisco way?" It works closely enough with the agency on these mergers for me to believe that it is as blessed as you can get in this country. But then again, if you are short this stock and you are desperate to bring that short in, you don't really give a darn that it is illegal to spread such rumors.
