Considering the chaos from the Lehman Bros news, I reviewed all of my stock holdings and re-thought my original investment thesis for each of them.

With the dictum "be fearful when others are bold and bold when others are fearful" ringing in my brain, I decided the original reason(s) I purchased those stocks are still valid and doubled my investment in each of them.

Most of them are well below the original purchase price and I'm hoping time will prove today's decision correct. Wish me luck!
