Trap is on a distinguished road

You picked an excellent entry point but I'd try to buy a few more shares and do it quick before Jan when Stern comes on board. 100 shares ain't much but you can add, just don't wait too long.

It's a good point because Siri recently dropped from over $7 so it will probably shoot up again. I just retired and got a nice Gov't buyout of and a big sum from my Thrift savings account plus $8,000 for my vacation leave. I'm also coming into a big court setttlement from an accident.

I'll get some of that money before Siri hits $7 and I'll buy another 2,000 shares or more.

The rest is being invested at 7% and will double in 10 yrs. Kicker is, you have to leave it in for 10 years for the 7%.

Siri should go over $7 again before Stern comes on and go up even higher. Accept for buying in a hurry, I ain't touching that $$ until after Stern comes on.

All that is just my humble freaking opinion.

mr. trap i see you know the rule of 72

i wouldnt beat myself up over when to buy and not to buy because from here on out i beleive it wont drop to much before going up. i bought it at $6.61 and it went up to 7.50 i could have sold and made that 80 bucks on my 103 shares. instead i didnt want to sell it because i didnt want to risk it going up while i sold out. instead it droped to what it is now $6.50. i could have taken the money it earned me and bought even more shares but no one ever knows when it will do what.

i think the point here is knowing that the stock wont go down much lower but it will go a lot higher.

From a few recent financial articles (and the concept that I learned in 8th grade):

Matt Krantz: There isn't one. The No. 1 rule for investors is to never fall in love with stocks. You should always be prepared to sell a stock once your unrealized loss reaches about 10% of what you paid. That way -- you can avoid catastrophic losses that are difficult to recover from. If the bear market taught us anything, it's that there's no such thing as a "safe" stock. Even AAA-rated blue chips, such as GE and ADP, have seen their stocks get destroyed in this bear.

Have sell rules -- and stick with them -- and you'll save yourself some major pain.

So, never attach emotion to a trade – treat them all the same and trade your strategy. And always have a stop loss in place. Don’t rely on mental stops as love can make you do crazy things!

NEVER FALL IN LOVE with a stock.
And of course...
