COMS actually got above your $5.12 buy price - for about two nanoseconds - on Thursday. But since you've got it in a Roth presumably you're prepared to hold onto it for many years, and you may yet do okay by hanging onto it.

I bought it at just under $5 and managed to get out a little above my buy price Thursday.


I don't necessarily think COMS is a bad stock for the long haul. But it embodied similar speculative risk characteristics as another stock (TINY) I own, so I thought I should decide between the two and shed the other.

COMS is, in theory, a "turnaround" story which - if successful - could reward you very handsomely down the road. Going through 3 CEOs in under 12 months, however, gave me reason for additional pause.....there's some "issue" there that's opaque to the individual investor......that made me uncomfortable.

Good luck!
