We should never regret the ones that got away, im, but try to learn from them. Actually, Apple has long been my #1 WouldaCouldaShoulda and when I finally bit the bullet, they missed guidance. That's what you get for chasing a good stock at a bad price.

When several w/c/s's happen in a row, I always remind myself that it's a lot more productive to make sure I have not picked any big losers than it is to hit every big winner. It's like baseball. You just have to win more than you lose and you're winning. Not that a couple of winning longshots can't help of course, but it's still more important to miss the big losers. I think even I can manage that most of the time, ha.
