Hello all, new to TMF.

I lost 100% on two stocks in that time frame. Globalstar (not really a dotcom) and a small gaming company I don't remember the name of.

My most recent flub was chasing SODA down. I temporarily lost any sense of a plan and bought more on the way down three times because I was 'sure' it was just a buying opportunity. I ended up putting about four times a normal position size for me into it. I sold out for about an average 25% loss putting quite a damper on other recent gains. A good although painful lesson for me that I probably would have avoided if I had been a member here at the time.
