    Some of you people are too damn short sighted

    The market goes up and down - New Era has been a tremendous performer in the past and it will be in the future. Buy weakness - Get rich!

    • I got in at 14 and got out at 26 LONG TIME AGO. i'M WAITING FOR THE BIG DIP (IN THE 20'S) AND AM GOING IN AGAIN. yES, YOU HAVE TO PAY TAXES ON GAINS, BUT i HAVEN'T HAD GAINS IN A LONG LONG TIME IN THIS MARKET. my retirement funds are shot; my brilliant stock selection could have been made by a monkey. New Era is a sure bet for later on. Don't dive in too soon...there might not be any water in the pool.

    • I agree. I have held new era for a very long time. As of about two days ago, I calculated my rate of return at 9.5% annually (since 1992). Yes I lost a lot of money last year. But since 1992, I earned 9.5 percent a year (compounded-number to compare to interest rate). To me I am still way ahead. I suggest that If you were in the market for a long time, run your numbers from day one. When the market was at its very low, I was getting about 7.5 percent. That calculation let me sleep at night.

      • My experience is similar, except I don't know how to calculate total return.
        This was in my company 401 k since the early 1990s. I have put in about 12,000 th first 4 years and added 7,500 later on (total: 19,500)As of today, the balance on the fund is about 43,500.
        It is now converted to an IRA since the co dissolved a few years ago.

        Over 15 years, the gain is 123% which is averaging 8.2% per year.
        Which is not great but considering that we had 2 market crashes ...

        Do you know of a good way to calculate total return?

    • The question is at what price? How much will the price drop, given a general "decline" (if indeed that is the case)in the fundamentals?
