What a blunder! :) I hope you held through 30Apr. I have owned both GM & GMH for years and I have made more profit off of H than the parent co. You will find that over time, GM averages about 7%-10% annual return. H will get you more like 12%. Check out how many of the new small satellite dishes you see on rooftops. This co. is one of the hottest selling products of the 90's. They are giving cable TV companies sleepless nights. No it's not Dell or Microsoft, but it does perform. Keep it a year, I think you will end up keeping it for a lot longer than that.
I only wish my blunders would turn out so well.
My most painful lesson was learning to trade seldom. Those commisions add up to a lot more than you realize over time.
Stay Foolish, you will get rich!
Tom
