Welcome to The Fool, Humberticus!

I unfortunately don't have much advice for you, as I'm an investing newbie myself, but you might want to consider re-posting this question on the "Investing Beginners" board (, as there tends to be more posting activity there.

I can definitely understand your pain on seeing the red number, though, as I only own one stock so far, and it's down. But I also know that is why I REALLY need to diversify my portfolio sooner than later. You'll win some and lose some, and the ultimate goal is to win more than you lose...

Good luck!
