      • There will be profit takers and day traders and many painful days along the way, even if this stock ends up the year at $4 or even $5. It's the nature of the market. I think you need to decide whether you believe this time ALU will substantially improve its position, or ultimately end up being ALU yet again. I have much confidence in Michel Combes, but that is based primarily on intangibles so far, and so I may be wrong.

        Some people here point out that it is unlikely we will continue to see such large percentage gains. If you bought for $1, you have triple in less than a year. Another triple requires us to get to almost $10, not very likely in a year's time. However, what that ignores is the leverage you have achieved through the growing value of your investment. When ALU tripled from $1, you made $2 per share. Now, if ALU just doubles, you will make more than that - $3. If that happens, and a couple years later it doubles again, you will make another $6, all on an investment of $1. And you do have the benefit of playing with the house's money. Nevertheless, losing the house's money, which in our minds quickly becomes "ours," is not much more pleasant than losing your own, so if you don't have confidence in ALU as a business, I wouldn't stay with it based on momentum or market psychology or stuff like that. I went through that during the internet bubble. The momentum was incredible. I was making astounding amounts almost daily. But I didn't understand the difference between real businesses and market psychology, so I was way to slow to get out, giving most of my paper gains back. If the valuation no longer makes sense, it's time to get out. I think we are a long way from there with ALU, but as I said,. I could be wrong.

      • Profit takers every friday, and day traders everyday. Now you can relax, and enjoy the climb.
