Thanks for the help from everyone. GE was 5% of my port, and now is 2%- 2008 to now; and I have been reinvesting dividends all along, so those are gone (except those invested between $9 and $16.

I'm listening to all of the wise advice above (BTW, hh, do you have a link to your Barron's letter?), but also thinking of the TMF study where they would have been better off had they never sold anything.
