Hi skololgi, This sounds great, unfortunately I am sitting in a -60% position and have been frozen with fear for the better part of three years. I deal with Ryan, Beck and I agree - a very good place. But I have certainly been pissed regarding the market forecasts that they had been spinning out at the time that I bought. I didn't know much of anything (call me dumb ass) when I bought at the brokers rec (RB was the market maker for their last large stock offering (AND was bought by BBX within 12 mos of that event, which has always given me a funny feeling in my stomach))! Was happy with the little up bubble, but then it's been all down. I hope it does double (then I'll only be down 30%!), it should from where it sits (unfairly smashed for doing a pretty good job and having a decent plan with excecution and promising market). I've been thinking of buying some more now to shorten the road back to only a painful loss (rather than an extreamly painful loss, but haven't done anything yet. Was aslo a bit dissappointed that the broker bought some BBX bonds for himself (yield 13%)while selling me the stock I got creamed by. Broker recently said to sit tight, well, I'm tight but uncomfortable. Also had BT somewhat prior to the DB buyout, also painful. Banks! How well do you know the bank? I have been worrying that they would get bought at the LOW price - broker said he hoped that they would get bought (suggested 16-17/share); I just stew.
