I bought my first shares of DCO in March '96. I can tell you that it doesn't make any positive price gains except just before or just after they announce earnings...

That's also true for some other small-cap, underfollowed stocks that I own, such as Chicago Minature Lamp, Pre-Paid Legal, American Homestar, etc.

Hang in there! If you are happy about the analysis you've done on the company, then you really shouldn't need someone else's affirmation that you made the right choice. (After having said that, I must admit to posting a stick-um note on my computer screen showing DCO's breakeven point. I recall that I waited 2 or 3 months before I was "safely" past worrying about it!!!...)
