Probably not. Though I'd like to point out - "volatile" is correct. As to "heck of a drop" I know we get concerned when we see a 10% drop, but don't forget the big ups, either.

On January 18th it closed at $65.82 (after opening at $63.67 - a nice rise in itself) but closed the following Monday at $69.80 (after hitting a high of $71.22).

Volatility goes both ways. Even with today's drop it is significantly higher than it was a month ago....

(And pretty much everyone has been expecting a price consolidation. It isn't unusual after a big run up - and is actually considered 'healthy.' If you are in for the long run, then it shouldn't be too big a concern. Me? I'm looking at the opportunity to buy some more.)
