I bought 300 shares of SIRN (Sirena Apparel) at 2.5.
It almost immediately dropped to 2, then NASDAQ halted
trading on it. Then I find out that they just fired
two of their top execs because they screwed with the
accounting. Two weeks later, still not able to unload
the stock thanks to NASDAQ's halt, the company goes
bankrupt! That's right, filed for chapter 11 today.

There goes $750 of my $2000 down the drain. Nothing
like a 38% loss in my first month of trading. I think
I'll quit now and cut my losses.

Regards,

The Biggest Fool of All
