Hi all,

I work a one of the biggest computer maufactures of today. I have 100% of my 401K in thier stock (it was perfomring a 200% rate of return as of last year). I have noticed that their stock price has stablized (nice way of saying dropped drastically). After going thru Fool U. I decedied to invest in the mid cap we offered. Their rate of return was 120%, as early as last week, compared to the 22% in my Company stock. I have noticed that my value or account balance reported has dipped when I went to the 80% mid cap /20% company stock. Mid Cap fund magr is Pilgram baxter & associated I have noticed a 6% decline of my original balance since 5/15.

Have I actually lost that money or is this virtual represent of the market value if I was to cash out today?

Should I be worried?

Help....TMF can you put me on the right track. I am cheap and hate to 'lose" money
