Since the beginning of the year, the amount of mail that we process has doubled. The ramp up in messages started this summer and has really increased since the middle of July. I'm sure they are not related but if you were to take a look at the SP-500, the composite index hit bottom in July (actually a double-bottom) and has been rallying straight up since then. I doubt that they are related but it is an interesting parallel.
As the subject line says, spam volume keeps going up and up. If it were a stock traded on an exchange it is one I would want to be long in. I haven't owned too many stocks that have doubled 3 and a half months if company SPAM were trading on the exchange, buying a few shares would have made me some money.
