i highly recommend you back up and read some older posts....especially 110, and those on subject of bravery....

the summary is all about risk...

how much do you risk as a common shareholder for this stock? the answer is 100% risk....(preferred shareholders may retain some equity under the new issues, common shareholders frequently lose everything when a company emerges from bankruptcy, when the company reissues stock and simply omits the little might reference the history of fruit of the loom FTL, old johns manville roofing JM, etc. for examples of this...)

how much do you gain? the answer is not calcualable, maybe 2, maybe 10x...

what does that mean to you? it is up to each individual to assess risk and reward...

always do your own due diligence, and assess your own risk/reward comfort factor....

after all, this may be real money you are spending....

good luck all!
