Investors Business Daily ranks Acacia number 3, lead by number one ranked Ciena Corporation (CIEN). If volume continues to surge, it would suggest institutional interest is returning. And, considering Ciena’s bullish trend, it would suggest that these makers of optical communications devices should see their shares continue higher in the coming months.
