Good post.

I was in Krispy Kreme before the bad news hit and on the day before the bad news hit I was watching it drop wondering why. I sold. It was people who knew what was going on before the news hit (insider trading?)

I did not lose in Krispy Kreme like alot on wall street did.

I have 1180 shares in Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI) Nobody can know it all. I know from experience that following numbers data leaves you chasing everybody else. Hard to get in (low) after good news on a good price.

I have about $60,000 in a 401K I did not take it out to put in this stock. I also did not sell all I own to put into it.

It's a new company a new technology and I believe I see it's future and I'm long on it. I see myself looking toward dividend stocks in the future to be honest. No bad ill here. I also bought a bank stock years ago when a brokerages research department warned against it. I made $40,000 that month. They were asking me for more tips!

Not even Peter Lynch knows it all sometimes not knowing is a virtue!
