GLW would be over 300 if they spin off their fiberoptic components business. It is very under valued now comparing to ETEK and JDSU.

Can you think of any other company that has so much demand for its products, that they have to "ration" out quantities to vendors and turn away new business? That's what seems to be going on in the market for the optical fibers, of which Corning is the king of the sand hill. All factories that manufacture fiber optic cable in the US are running way over normal capacity to attempt to keep up with order backlogs. Many of the biggest names are refusing new customers in order to take care of their existing customers demand. Anyone know what Corning can do to step up production of optical fiber to relieve the world wide shortage? Are they building more production capacity? Is demand for fiber going to be like demand for more computer power and bandwidth, i.e., something like a Moore's law?
Ray.

Fiberoptic component industry just likes semiconductor 15 years ago. The optical networking revolution just begins. GLW is the king and they own many key technologies. It is very under-valued

GLW is also in the process of acquiring technology. Once the deals close (Oak and Siemens), it provides them with a broader product range.

Anyone know what the secondary offering does to the possibility of a stock split. Do they need to wait for its conclusion before announcing a split. That is what i would think. By the way, when is the secondary offering?
thanks.

If anyone is interested the GLW secondary offering was priced at 151 3/8.
Glad to have that out of the way. Should be all clear for big gains going forward and a stock split in the near future.
I bet they wanted to wait until after the seconday offering before announcing a split.

Agree. P/E less then 1/3 of JDSU. Nice coverage on moneyline tonite. I have sold puts sept 110's starting several days ago. The CEO really seems to be with the program. Fiber optic cable to provide 80% of the revenues for GLW next year per moneyline this pm.

750 million dollar upgrade to increase production capacity. Apparently as I understand it all of the fiber optic cable they can produce for the next 2 years is already spoken for.

Steve,
I've enjoyed your posts on the G & K option thread and have followed you here. If I had the wherewithal(sp), I would have followed your suggestion earlier in the week on GLW. Just didn't have the guts, I guess, to enter a new position.

That being said, would you post when you are planning on adding to your position. I am heavily weighted to QCOM, Jdsu and to a lesser extent, NOK and EMC.

I think GLW looks like it should be in my portfolio, but have bought at the top too often.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Bruce
