***********************************************

ComStock, Inc., an Interactive Data Corporation company (NYSE: IDC) and a leading provider of real-time global market data, today unveiled its next-generation data distribution network.

The new, high-speed Titan Data Network is designed to carry data at rates of up to 300 megabits per second (Mbps), up from the current limit of 42Mbps on ComStock's IP4 network that was launched in early 2005. This represents an increase of more than 600%. The Titan Data Network, which utilizes the same underlying technical infrastructure upon which the IP4 network was built, has the expanded network capacity designed to more effectively manage the rapid increases in data volume across the industry, while maintaining low latency.

Yes, IDC is obviously a very well-run outfit. Looking back over 3 years, their 70-80% gain is not that spectacular compared to many other stocks coming off the bear market lows. But it would have been a solid, comfortable holding in any value portfolio.

You are right. I like to have some of those comfortable stocks.

However, even the comfortable can bite the dust. So care always the order of the day.

I do find the current expansion of interest.

Having been through that bear market----often hard to believe that some of these stocks will come back--no doubt they will.

Anyone know the reason for the recent price drop? I haven't been following closely and I just noticed it.

First imo is the market generally over the past few weeks.

Would not be surprised if there are some short sellers----noticed on the Yahoo Board some recent negative comments regarding IDC from a few posters. Criticism for buying the assets of Raging Bull. (I can't see that the criticism has any merit. jmho)

IDC has plans for Raging Bull don't know these.

You may want to also check out PSO, Pearson which has interest in IDC. What ever affects them may also affect IDC.

I am overwhelmed with projects otherwise I would ferret this out for you and others.

Update: Recent news worth posting on IDC

"Interactive Data's ComStock Delivers Comprehensive Tick Data Service for Global Securities
ComStock, an Interactive Data (NYSE: IDC) business and a leading provider of real-time global market data and managed solutions, today announced PlusTick, a new service that will provide financial institutions with access to high-quality tick and trade data for global securities.

By offering comprehensive securities information in an easy-to-use format, PlusTick can help clients to more effectively comply with "best trade execution" and other government mandates, and back-test and analyze algorithmic trading applications designed to improve investment performance.

PlusTick, which is currently available, unites ComStock's vast resource of real-time, low latency data with a robust database. With this new fully managed service, clients can identify a list of covered financial instruments, and PlusTick can deliver full tick and trade data for these securities on an intra-day or daily basis. PlusTick is designed to be seamlessly integrated into a broad range of financial applications and existing quote and trade databases, which can enable clients to access a comprehensive source of financial information without altering their workflow.

The new service offers comprehensive Level I and Level II information from over 60 markets around the world, including major U.S. and European exchanges. Clients can receive information for a range of data elements, including trade, bid, ask, volume, open, high, low, and close.

"In light of developing compliance mandates in both the United States and Europe for 'best trade execution' of securities trades and the continued emergence of algorithmic trading applications, it is critical for global firms to have access to high-quality information that can be delivered when they need it and in a format that easily integrates into their current systems and processes," said Mark Hepsworth, president of ComStock. "By offering a fully managed service, PlusTick can enable clients to focus on their core business instead of data management, helping them to more effectively utilize the massive volume of data that flows through the financial markets."

Additional information on PlusTick, including a full list of all supported markets, is available at comstock-interactivedata.com.
