Q: Fortinet dropped 25% after poor billings guidance. Based on that, and the fact that Palo Alto announced around that time that it would report on a Friday, Palo Alto stock dropped 20%. But after Palo Alto reported earnings, the stock jumped, so net Palo Alto is down around 5%. Yet Palo Alto also projected a slowdown in billings. Why did investors like Palo Altoís earnings report and not like Fortinetís earnings report? Thanks.

Q: Dear Peter et al:

Above mentioned stocks I hold as a small percentage of my portfolio. Of course I am down now! However I have been using covered call strategy to "get paid whilst I wait"! So, I am happy to hold them for a few years.
The question I have is this. Are these good companies to hold for a few years? If not, would you suggest any alternatives? I see from your answers that you like FTNT/CRWD,PANW.

Thank you for your answer.
Mano.
