Since 2008 how much have you gained or lost?
It's about growing one's investment over time, no?
You sound like an old geezer hoping to avoid further freefall
No one invests here and expects riches overnight
They simply don't want to be down 70%
Is that too much to ask?
Anyone in the last two years, who took your advice, is down as much as 75%
And that's not good investing
You should have exited somewhere near the high of .27 back in Dec 2011
Karenlupa: IF one is down 50, 60, or 70 percent we are looking at paper losses and there is no reality to this type of decline unless you sell. Paper gains or losses are not meaningfull whatsoever unless you sell. Only at that point are your losses meaningfull. You are simply looking for a feel good situation if you are up on paper or a feel bad situation if you are down. When I buy this type of speculative, high risk stock I ask myself how long will it probably take to make any money on this. Back in 2008 I thought it would take between 4 to 7 years. I'm still in my comfort zone. I hope you can see where I'm coming from. Please don't label me a pumper or a basher or whatever term so many labels folks like to place on others. I first recognized that stem cells is the future of medicine. I then did DD on about a dozen companies in this field. My "gut feeling" was spiked by studying all I could find on Dr. Robert Lanza. He is a winner. He has what I call grit and determination. I decided to hitch a ride on his star and here I am today. Before I go I just want to mention that I am not a constant trader like in and out daily or weekly etc. I have always picked stocks with an eye to the future and in time if your DD is good you do quite well. I know, I know, the stock pundents today will tell you that buy and hold is the past and really not in vogue today. I have never listened to many of these so called experts. I follow my own path. My advice to you and others on this board is be an individual and not a sheep in the flock. I am sincere when I say that I want anyone who has money invested in ACTC to do well. Just don't think that today's price will always be there. IF it even goes down to 5 cents or less you must ask yourself this. How has this drop affected me? ONLY your own perception. You still own your shares and that has not changed. NOW, if you sell then and only then has your perception been realized. Try and not worry. Worrying can cause stress and stress will harm your immune system. Good luck.
thanks mclarence for the much needed grounding on this board...I used to design biotech labs, and the process is insane -- racing to change the design as the production of the drug changes. that's when I learned that patience is part of the game, and although I am not immune to a gut-kick when I see the stock at half of what I bought it, I'm here for the science. IMO buy (not with your grocery money) and go away...
