Motley Fool Stock Advisor
optionsXpress, an online broker that competes with the likes of E*Trade
All in all, I wouldn't read too much into the results. The markets are extremely jittery, which resulted in a loss of confidence and accounted for optionsXpress's lackluster sequential growth. One month is probably far too short a time period to judge optionsXpress' long-term prospects.
