  1. I'm seriously thinking about it.

    $2k isn't much money, and you get 200 shares.

    I can wait two years, as this isn't my main source of income.
    Even if it goes to $5 or 3 in the meantime, I wont be worried at all.
  2. 2 years???? You'll be lucky to still be solvent after 2 weeks.:D :D :D

  4. Insolvent?

    $2k is only a fraction of my account.
  5. I'd rather buy 100 shares of a nat-gas driller like PTEN and get paid a 2.8% dividend.
  6. I meant the position, not you personally.
  7. do you actually believe the company will bounce back or are you wanting to buy because prices are "cheap"?

    If the latter, read (or re-read) ROASO

  8. Yeah But That fraction is 3/4....
  9. Has management bought? Think about it.
  10. why not use your money elswhere for 1 3/4 years then buy leh if its going up
