One of the risks noted in the HG recommendation was that better software may make SOLD obsolete. I liquidated my shares with a 1% gain the morning I read a fool's article about zillow.com

The recent tank may be due to low earnings, but you got a real estate bubble starting to blow on top of soon obsolete technology product and there's no way I'll stick with it to see how low it will go.

Buy more while it is cheap if you must, but everything about this stinks like old fish to me.

I've learned in technology investing to abandon ship while there's room in the lifeboat. Other sectors have some intrinsic value that cushions a fall, but not technology.
