Yawn. My gains today more than made up for Sirius' decline. Ahhh...diversification. In fact, I bought my SIRI shares with long term profits from selling Bankrate (RATE) two days before it dropped from 18 to 14.

Seriously, unless there is stock market crash, there is absolutely no reason you should ever get upset or lose sleep over a stock. If you do, you either have no exit strategy, don't believe in the long term potential of the company, or don't have a good foundation of profitable companies to allow you to speculate on a company like SIRI.

I don't care about the 7% drop today because I didn't plan to sell today, and I didn't plan to sell if it hit 5 and some change. No worries....the loss is only on paper.

It is fun to watch the day to day changes, but don't let it bother you.
