Welcome to the boards.

I think you gave up on the stock way to soon. If you do not have at least 3-5yrs to wait for a company to prove its self, you should not buy the stock. As you read and learn from some very smart people on the boards, you learn that this is standard investing wisdom. Take more time to study a stock and more time for the stock to move through its many stages.

Best of luck and keep posting,

David
