I have also purchased IP as part of a Foolish approach on 2/9...but this was part of an update wherein I was adding more to the pot.

I originally purchased IP back in August, 96, and wondered when this dog would perform its tricks. In July, 97, it took off, rising more than $4 in a single day. It settled back a little bit but was my top performer until the October crash-and-burn. It has yet to catch fire again (tho' yesterday's $1 1/2 increase was nice to see...almost up to where I bought it at for the update).

IP has not been a pyrotechnic performer over the past 19 months, barring a few stellar days and a few more gut-wrenching falls. But we'll see if IP can't be the dawg it's supposed to be come the next update period.
