lasagolf, if you saw the price action of VHC after its MSFT victory you'd know we've been down this road before. If history is any guide, the move back to $40 is inevitable. It will be our third round trip and with
4G here we might just stay there.
I gave up too. Got in at what I thought was a good price (19) and so regret not selling at 19.80. Then bought again at 18, made my money back, and then, just yesterday, was about to sell all or most while still in green, then was being asked to sell it at 18.9 when the stock at the time said 19.50. Totally wished I sucked it up and sold, of course. Now, whenever it hits 16.6, it always seems to fall back. The jump gets smaller and smaller. Personally don't have the stomach for "patent" stocks, I guess. I lost all my profits since doing stocks (after wife lost her job) plus a wee bit more. If the majority of shorts ever leave the stock, may get back in (assuming it's at a much lower level), but assume this is one of those stocks best played by people playing with other people's money.
Well the good news is that this stock could jump $10 in a blink of en eye. I'm down about .80 with 7k shares but I'm not worried. I've been through this countless times before with IDCC and patience pays off with these patent stocks.
