I am a small investor, with only 50$ per week to spend on what I deem risky investing (anythng outside of my "real" holdings like my 401K and my Roth). I tend to purchace and hold on to stocks for the long term.

I also own a DVD player, and rent lots of movies. DISK was my very first purchace. I bought it because many of the movies I rented came from this company. I truley believe that DVD's will replace VCR's at some point.

Unfortunatly, this stock seems to do nothing but fall. I have lost about 1/2 of my initial investment.

Should I hold onto this for a few years, or should I just sell and take the loss.. with no dividend and stock prices falling far below what I paid, I am about to chalk this one up as a mistake.
