On December 12, 2007, I put a bunch of optical stocks in a tracking port at Yahoo. The networking sector had been hammered, and I knew optical stocks would come back one day. I just didn’t know which stock was going to take off. So I listed a bunch of names and gave each one an imaginary $10,000.

Yesterday, after three years, I took a look at it.


A mythical 17-bagger, heh. Would you be willing to list the others in the port and how they did? I used to follow the sector, too, and it helped me learn what a bad investor I was, when they all crashed. Made me poorer short-term, smarter long term.
