That check that took a little over two weeks to get to Datek last fall was going to go towards a stock that was @ 17 at the time. During those two weeks it went up to 24 or 25, and I thought it was too pricey...I held the money and bought something else a few weeks later. The stock that I was eyeing at 17 and went to 24 closed at 72 today. Hindsight sucks.

Thanks yall.
