Yeah I learned my lesson riding SCON up back in the day from $1 a share up to $120+...remember when we thought superconductors would rule the world or at least cell phone towers?... went up so quickly, over a week or so, and came back down even quicker. Good news is I sold around 100 dollars bad news is I had a bad case of FOMO and bought back in around 80 after convincing myself i was interested in the long term story and that it would go back up oops...

Have encouraged as many as I could to at least think about their exit strategy today, as nobody really knows what is going to happen when, but I guess some lessons need to be learned the hard way. They are saying things like "This time it's different", "This is a gamma/infinity short" etc... Makes for some interesting entertainment though for sure, I just hope young people don't get burned so badly that they never learn how to really invest.
