Re: I disagree.
Your logic is sound, but only applies when a business is run like a business. And they aren't anymore. They are now nothing more than short term investments, and their value is tied only to how much they can bring in, and how little they spend, today. Day traders don't care that a lack of investment in the network today might mean a total loss of business 6 months from now. Nor do they care that policies and products rolled out today might screw the company (or it's customers) down the road. They care only about today, and thus, the business operates as such. -- Intel i7-2600k /ASRock P67 Extreme4 /4x 4Gb G.Skill /2x Intel 510 series 250Gb SSD /3x WD20EADS 2TB /2x PNY GTX 260 /Silverstone 850W /Custom water cooler /Antec Twelve-Hundred
"Day traders" are a minuscule part of the market. However, there is an increasing number of short term investors (i.e. investment time frames of months vs years) likely due to market efficiencies and availability of information. There's nothing wrong with this IMO. Sound businesses that grow revenue and increase margins will continue doing well in the eyes of investors. These sound businesses will also reinvest capital to ensure this growth continues. Your narrow view of investors is tainted by a "visible minority".

Re: I disagree.
As opposed to the long-term investors--aka, the customers (where all of the real money comes from).
