Hi all....

I am either in need of advice or of some good ol' Foolish "stay the course" pep talk. I'm not good with number crunching yet, but I do like the theory and analysis I read on this board and in Hewitt's book. I bought Sanderson Farms a while ago, based on the earnings power. Now, I'm wondering if I should bail, as the stock is spiraling downward fairly steadily, and bird flu paranoia is creeping in to my mind. I'd like to know what others think-- is the stock still strong, assuming there is no catastrophe? If it's such a well-run company, wouldn't it be likely to adapt to the threat, and to recover soon if the flu hit their birds?
Looking forward to reading opinions from those more experienced and/or skilled at analysis than I am. Thanks in advance!
