After reading an article by Cramer in 1998, I bought SCON, who makes Superconducting filters for cell towers which allow a doubling of calls and much higher bandwidth for photos, video, web surfing over cell phones. My story is good and bad. The good is that I bought it at 1.20 and watched it soar to 110.00. The bad is that I never set a stop order and I watched it go back to the original price. There is no defense for not setting a stop order and keep it moving up with the stock. Having said that, I was moving across country and was without internet access for 2 months and stupidly thought that all was well. After the initial plunge to 45.00 or so, I optimistically assumed it would recover it's trip to new highs.

There it is.....I said it and it is out of my system.....NOT
