Today is a red letter day. I checked my IRA value today, something I only do every couple of weeks or so with a LTBH portfolio.

I have now fully recovered from the tech wreck. My IRA is again worth what it was when I took over managing my own stock selections in February 2001.

Five plus years. Net gain - zero. But I'm back to square one.

It's been a long road getting back to the starting line. I've learned a lot - much too much of it the hard way. Hopefully, future lessons won't be so expensive.
