Don't worry too much guys. Since I have held this stock (3 months) it seems to be doing this on occasion. I actually sold a few days ago @ 58.50 as I needed some cash, but with this drop I may look to get in again.

I think that much of it may just be short momentum trading (just a guess). If people follow the fool eight closely I am sure that many set 'target gains' and sell when it reaches them or when you see a slide like today. For every one of these people there is probably one who was asking 'Am I too late to get in' well this may provide those people with a dip to buy on that will in turn stabilize the price.

Being relatively thinly traded, a one day drop gets highly exaggerated. I have had the same thing happen with other F8 picks.

On a positive note the company appears to be sound and the fundamentals have not changed dramatically in 24 hours.
