Want a more recent example? I was in Novastar (NFI) for a year until late last fall, when the whole housing thing started to feel uncomfortable -- and their seemingly "pyramid like" structure scared me. Am I glad I got iout at $26!!!!

Aha!! So you're the one that sold your Novastar to me. Its rare that you get to meet the party on the other side of a stock transaction.

You might like to know I've taken good care of your stock. I keep it safe in my account, and talk to it regularly. I am a little concerned that it seems to have shrunk lately. Maybe I need to feed it better.
