Hi deltalady sorry for the delay in replying and posting this ,been busy with the orchard and kids moving house.



Looking at the chart it has been on a steady upward climb for for about 8 months and rarely breaking through the trend line ,which is a healthy sign ,


Recent trading you can see a volume spike on 20/9 when it traded 1.2 mill then it forms a double top followed by a reversal candle (hanging man)and yesterday we get a full black bearish candle ,


A quick look at reduced volumes and indicator's pointing down ,it looks like a retrace is on the cards , http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/sadsmiley02.gif


I do not follow this stock but check what the p/e is for other stocks in this sector maybe its got ahead of its earnings.???

One more close up candlestick chart will help you understand what I am waffling on about ,

Also forgot to mention the resistance point (red line) at 49c-ish,


Good luck

Thanks muchly for the charts Arthur...not to mention the helpful analysis http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/graduated.gif


I follow your reasoning on this one, especially with the vol falling away and resistance confirmed in market depth.


many things driving this stock (in both directions!)....latest report was good...(earnings trebled from memory),...PE is just slightly below the sector....and they seem to get write ups in IT/telco mags from time to time leading to short term buying which inevitably tapers off.


on balance, i guess i would now be looking for a good bounce off 44c to confirm a continued uptrend before going back in. but hey...who knows???


one to keep an eye on!


have fun in the orchard http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Much has been written of the potential 'growth' of VoIP in recent times. AOL have just announced their involvement (see Quilton's post on the QPX board) in : "The technology, known as Voice over Internet Protocol, VoIP, is being touted as the next big revolution in communications."


From this (friday's) Article, it seems, GOOGLE may also enter this exciting field.


Should Google Enter the VoIP Race?


Friday April 8, 4:34 pm ET

By Kelvin Taylor - (Motley Fool)



I've talked before about how voice-over Internet protocol, or VoIP, is the next telecommunication revolution. Both Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO - News) and Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT - News) MSN have long offered rudimentary phone service using their instant messaging software through a PC. This was the beginning of the end for high-cost consumer long-distance service.


After many years of denial, the phone companies are recognizing that traditional long distance is an endangered species and now offer VoIP plans to their customers. But it isn't just the big telecoms such as AT&T (NYSE: T - News), BellSouth (NYSE: BLS - News), and Verizon (NYSE: VZ - News) who are in the game. Cable operator Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA - News) and Time Warner's AOL are rolling out their versions along with private startups such as Vonage, which has offered service nationwide for a few years now. All are bidding for the growing demand for cheaper services, which Internet telephony provides.


Enter another possible player: Google (Nasdaq: GOOG - News). Yes, Google.


The big G may be planning more than just providing email and Web searches. At first glance, it may seem odd that Google would venture into this type of business, but a closer look reveals that there is a huge market to exploit. Services based on VoIP have seen rapid growth in the past year, thanks in part to rates that are typically below what traditional phone services charge.


Of the 113 million or so traditional landlines that still use the old circuit-switched technology, about 115,000 U.S. homes are switching to VoIP every month. Fast-forward three years, and close to 16 million households will have VoIP service. That carries the assumption that current growth rates are sustainable, which they may be, as many nascent technologies experience an initial surge in growth and level off until technology becomes well-established.


What's in it for Google? Look at it this way.


VoIP services require little infrastructure to build and maintain, since the services run over the Internet. Low-cost, flat-rate plans are ideal revenue streams for providers minus the regulations and taxes currently charged with traditional phone service. Features such as voice mail sent as email attachments would give Google another option when promoting its Gmail service. Plus the Web-based accounts where users can track calls, change service options, or add calling features would be another advertising billboard.


Even though Google won't be the first to join the talk-over-the-Internet club, it has the muscle to compete. As with many services, price sells the service. If the big G can combine the right ingredients with a price structure below the competition, Googlians will have yet another reason to smile. That said, this might well be a reason for the company to consider its entry carefully, since vast productive capacity and low barriers to entry will invariably lead to some degree of price competition.


After many years of traditional phone service, Fool contributor Kelvin Taylor decided to try the VoIP. He does not own shares of any of the companies mentioned.>

Q: What about VoIP? BlueRun led SunRocket's recent round. With Vonage tipping in with more than 500,000 subscribers and everyone from AOL to MSN to traditional carriers entering the market, isn't SunRocket late?


SunRocket executives come out of the MCI of 80s and early 90s. They are consumer marketing people. Now that the technology is ready, it's all about value to the end-user. It's alternative phone service. Are they competing with Vonage directly? The answer is they are not competing directly with Vonage. They are competing with Verizon and others [regional and long-distance carriers].


There's going to be multiple [VoIP] choices There's room for three significant, independent VoIP-based service providers who have different ways of attacking the market. [SunRocket's leaders] know how to build billion-dollar companies.

Glad you liked it... Thanks for posting the info.


Tried Skype myself for VoIP, but couldn't get any of my friends to download it so...hasn't had much use yet. Also, my most expensive conversations are usually carried out on the move, so VoIP not much help ..


IRI is in a good (paying!) segment of the market and in an excellent position due to its link with Cisco.


Cheers, Lizard
