So I bought APC back when it was $54.47 a share and I bought 18 shares. My question is what does its future look like? I have heard so many mixed answers. I know that they are restructuring but they also have have primary negative EPAs. Do I hold out for possible upturn or cut my losses?

That's such a tiny position, it doesn't matter what you do. But a recovery isn't likely

The OP asks a perennially asked question, "How long will it take for XYZ to recover?"

Obviously, no one can say with certainty, given that no one know what the future will be. But it's possible to make contingent projections, based on either fundamentals or technicals. So, do this. At FreeChart, plot APC with weekly bars and a 3-year look back. Next, create enough white space to the right of current prices that a trendline can be projected into the future off the three recent lows. It takes until 2025 before price tags $54.

Obvious, going forward, APC can do worse than it's presently doing, just as it can do better. (I.e., the "cone of uncertainty"). But the expectation should be that it will pretty much do whatever it's currently doing, which means a long, long wait before prices get back to the OP's entry point. Meanwhile, of course, inflation has been eroding purchasing power, creating steady losses.

As traders say --and as "investors" should learn to say-- "Your first loss is your best loss." If the market doesn't immediately confirm that your entry was correct, you need to admit that you made a bad bet and to fix the problem.

Seriously, why did you buy APC on a downward spiral heading south to around $32.00. Charts don't lie, people do.

I believe energy stock would have been a better choice. eg.....DUK and ED giving excellent quarterly dividends. DUK gives classes to other companies on how to run an energy company.

Just a thought
