Hi Proper21, usually I just talk to myself on this board!

I hate to disappoint you but I invested in this for the VERY long term, so I don't have any guesses as to what the price will be doing between now and October. My investment is related to what they can become 10 years from now, not what they are going to be four months from now. So far I've owned it three years and I'm down 11% so far. (I think I was up as much as 30% at one time but not anymore.) A guy who is more into market gyrations would probably have sold it and bought it back cheaper but I don't have much luck with timing the market. I've been lucky a few times but overall I seem to do best when I just pick a good company and hold for the long haul. I believe the return on this stock will be good but I also know that I won't be holding my breath waiting as it's going to take some time.
