I started researching Enron two years ago and although I was intrigued by the company and it's business I never felt I understood the stocks value well enough to invest. When the stock hit 80 or so though, I started thinking I understood enough to know that this was one overpriced stock that had nowhere to go but down. I wanted to short it but the (remote in this case) risk of unlimited losses kept me from doing so.
This was the one that got away.
The lesson for me is that if I've done due diligence on a stock for two years I should trust my instincts.
