Hi seldom958,

While I'm glad that you were able to time perfectly the jump in Supervalu's shares, the risk now is that the buyout deal will collapse. Plus, the risk when you bought the shares last Friday was that it wouldn't happen at all.

Why, oh why didn't I buy more?

Pure hindsight. Ignore the feeling. If the opposite happened (no buyout, company goes bankrupt, shares worth $0.0001), you would be asking, "Why, oh why did I buy so much?"
