While I'd happily join a discussion on the vulnerability of the markets to new tech PR, I really wasn't referring to current profitability; it was more a comment looking to the future.
Neither company has shown any signs of initiative or innovation for a long time; both have followed the technology caravan, not taken a lead. Both have been strong on promises, weak on delivery.
I am not suggesting for one second that either company is on the verge of bankruptcy, nor making a comment on the advisability of investing or divesting in their stock.
I have no special info, I am not a market man, and my comments should not be taken as implying any course of action is better than any other.
But they are a pair of sad companies, don't you think? :)
