After about two years of playing with stocks and creating a fools portfolio, I watched my play money gain almost 60 percent. Thats when I got brave. I decided to put my money in a couple of 'old reliables' at&t and mcdonalds. They haven't exactly lit up the sky. Then I fell in love with a company that I thought, and still do think, had great potential. I thought about buying it at $65, it went up. I thought that it has to come back down... thought about it at $75... no way can it stay there... it has to come down... at $82 I decided there was no way I was going to miss this boat so I jumped into the bathtub without checking for icecubes. Two days later the boys were shriveling up and within a week they were in my throat. Last I checked gemstar was at about $46. Ah well. I figure it's only a loser if you sell and since I never got in for the short-term I'm still holding on. Rich
