Golly, Symmetricom Inc. unleashed its wrath today as it performed exceptionally great in the stock market with a $2.44 gain up 51.15% at $7.21 per share. For instance for those that didn't get in early, if you would of had 41 shares of this Company you might have made over one hundred dollars before tax. I guess it would be safe to say that slow dough, is better than no dough.
