Ciena Corporation (CIEN) Sets the Stage for a Broad Networking Surge: JDS Uniphase Corp (JDSU), Finisar Corporation (FNSR)

Fellow optical specialist JDS Uniphase Corp (NASDAQ:JDSU) soared as high as 8.4% on Ciena Corporation (NASDAQ:CIEN)’s end-market signals. Infinera Corp. (NASDAQ:INFN) saw a smaller but still significant 6.4% surge. Both companies are coasting along right in the middle of a reportable quarter, and won’t provide solid answers until the end of April.

Investors here should keep a close eye on Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ:FNSR) tonight, because simultaneous good news from not one but two of the industry’s most central players would inevitably trickle down to the other majors as well.
