Well, today did it to me. This is the first time I've had a loss large enough to make me feel sick to my stomach.

Tidewater is a big part of that loss, but EVERYTHING else I own is down, too, a good deal of it 50% or MORE.

I'm not planning to sell, because in some cases I am following Foolish mechanical strategies and in other cases I chose the companies through (what I believe was) diligent analysis. In the former cases I am going to stick to the strategies for the long haul, and in the latter cases I am going to stick with the companies for the long haul.

...but I still feel sick.
