Bei f5 warten wir jetzt im Januar schon auf das Christkind!

MPLX ist eine spekulative Aktie, welch noch von kaum jemandem entdeckt wurde.

F5 duerfte seit dem 25.01.2000 einem breiten Publikum, vor allem in den USA bekannt sein. Europa schlaeft. Lassen wir es schlafen! Ihr seht ja, sollen andere ihren Hartcourts, adultshops, deepgreens etc. hinterherlaufen, wir koennen uns in entspannt zuruecklehnen, denn eins ist sicher, diese Welt und die Welt von morgen braucht die Produkte von f5. Aber die Welt kann auf die Hartcourts verzichten!

Das war das letzte posting zu f5.
Ende der Diskussion.

P.S. Freut mich, dass Ihr auch dabei seid!

Alles paradox,

hier sieht man mal wieder das Phänomen, dass Unternehmen die Gewinn erwirtschaften (der noch dazu 80% über den Erwartungen liegt), mit erreichen der Gewinnschwelle uninteressant zu werden scheinen, bis es der Markt akzeptiert hat und sie wieder steigen können.

In der Ruhe liegt die Kraft!
