I remember when I thought I would ride Lucent into the sunset lol. - Ned

Well, well... I did that.. I held at one time 10k shares of LU.. Growth, splits, more work than we could keep up with, what can go wrong! I had my finger on the button to move the bulk of it, mulled it over and cancelled that order.. Huge mistake... Rode it down to near zip... We recently sold the last bits to pin the loss, as far as taxes, but it was not a pretty sight...

Luckily AAPL and others have more than made up for it, but it's a sad thing to see LU go down... Thanks Carly!

Bummer... My District level had bailed in time, but my Area manager was about where I ws at 10K/shares, he also rode it out... A lot of the investors did, sadly...
