yes, but.....

"a short while" in my finger counting department looks like five months. So what is the cost of opportunity lost over those months? No matter what, I'll be selling at a loss @$10, and what's worse, it's in a tax sheltered account so there's no capgains loss to use as an excuse for exiting. So I've got a more or less 18% gain (figuring 8.5 v 10 over the 5 months) guaranteed, or the opportunity to place this chunk of change into something that may outgrow the guarantee. I'd jump at $9, but giving the arbs a buck and half just rubs me the wrong way. Guess I'll have to drown my festering (and spend down my ChopHouse Gift Card) over a Fireman's special.
