Hi Tom,

A little confidence building is always good for the psychy when times are tough. Again today I suffered...even further in the hole. I am even diversified over 12 stocks with many reccs from different TMF newsletters and even Lou Navellier. Somewhat depressing now, but in the long term I should be fine. My how difficult it is to convince myself of that at the moment. But it will come, in due time.

As for the "Intelligent Investor", I too have a copy and started to read it a couple of months ago. I found the first chapter a bit boring as everyone else did. It may be part of the reason that I haven't continued. I would like to think that my procrastination has been driven by my demanding schedule. Still no excuse to not read at min 10pgs per night before bed.

I intend to continue, and finish, the book. After all that I have read on these boards about its value, I have to finish it. Thanks again for the optimism, it helps heal the "Intelligent, but depressed, Investor".

BTW, going by your board name "illini1990", I assume you graduated from Univ of Illinois in the year 1990? I am BigTen brethren to you as I graduated from PSU in 1994. Thought I would pass that along.
