I first bought this stock at $26 then doubled up when it dropped to $14. By doing so my basis went from $26 to $20 and I turned a 46% loss into just a 30% loss. That's an improvement of 16%!

I just doubled up again at $6. So my basis is now $13 a share, down from $20. And once again, I've turned a 70% loss into just 54%! That's another 16% improvement!

That's a total of 32% improvement in performance. And in just a little over a year! Who says this is a bad investment?!? GO D&B!!!

I'd write more, but it's 8:00 AM and I haven't started drinking yet.
