I wonder if leclezio held on to his shares. I didn't. I have a small holding but luckily my wife has a large block from a profit sharing plan. I bought at 28/share early 1999 and dollar cost averaged bimonthly all the way to 14/share. When it went to 10 a share I panicked and sold 200 shares. Who would have thought that I would have come out on top if I had held on to so big of a looser.It just goes to show you...... Fundamentals. Stick to the plan. Dollar cost average. If a good company tanks buy more. It was my first stock so lesson learned. Good luck to all.
