AT&T Wireless. I bought it at the IPO. The Facebook IPO has been giving me flashbacks. AWE was one of the largest IPOs of all time, riding the wave of the dot com bubble. I was clamoring for as many shares as I could get and my broker was able to get me an extra 100. I thought I'd really scored. I bet many of retail FB investors felt the same way on IPO day. Long story short, I did have a double for a bit but ended up selling at a 50% loss. I did very little research and it was a stupid purchase and I deserved to lose my money. But I'll never forget it.
