No. of Recommendations: 8
I bought this turkey on a recommendation by an advisor in Louis Rukeyser's Wall Street. I bought it at $12. Had I done any kind of decent DD on it instead of relying on the limited numbers in Lou's newsletter, I'd have realized it was on death's door. Instead I bought it, the bottom fell out, and I bailed at $2 rather than risk getting stuck with zero. It was eventually taken over, for much less than $12. Good picks in Lou's newsletter redeemed it from this bum recommendation, but he has never published another pick from the same guy who picked Medpartners. But for me to buy on such flimsy DD was nothing short of UPID-STAY!!!!!
