I agree with you.

This is not the stock to buy if you are looking for a quick buck.

I like to think of it as Certificate of Deposit (I know it's not guaranteed) that will pay off big in 5-10 years. I know about opportunity cost, etc. But this company (with current management or someone else in charge) will be back near the top, again. When? I don't know. But you can bet when the stock goes up to anything near 30, it will go back down again, with everybody who bought it at 18-29 jumping ship. Particularly the ones who bought at 18-21 with just such a plan in mind.. That's when you will need patience and confidence. Because it going to go up and down like a roller coaster before it settles down and starts it's steady climb.

I'm no expert at this stuff and don't claim to be. But I truly believe Xerox will be back.
