IMHO investing is tricky in and of itself. The best part of getting older is the ability to not react to every hint of disaster that is available to read on the web or view on cable about any and every investment possible. As a long term investor, I look for companies or products that have sustained profitability and a history of stable and/or increasing dividends. Missing a projected earnings estimate by one or two cents should not cause such an irrational reaction. All things being equal, it seems to be reactive and not based on actual performance. ~ mkp
