Rolls20, that's a good story about Delta. So far I don't have anything horrible to tell where I've completely lost my money like that. However, I did buy into Chipotle (CMG) in mid January of this year after it had dropped from a December high and I was thinking it was a good buy... however it continued to drop and is now holding my whole portfolio down. I'm not too worried, though, since it has only been a couple months and their financials are still looking good.

My whole goal with stock market investing is to create an education fund for my future kids... so that's a 20 plus year life for my portfolio. I'm trying to pick stocks that I can hold for a year or two at a time, though. Don't want to be day-trading, but not looking to just put my money in and let it sit for 20 years either.
