For those longs, I agree with your statement. Look, if GS and MS are accumulating shares, then it makes sense to accumulate too or just stand pat. I think the tough part here is the waiting game. BE PATIENT. Savvy investors have a thick skin to help weather the wild fluctuations of the stock price. This is especially hard to do if you long options. Stay away from options unless you are writing covered calls. Keep in mind that historically, 85% of call/put options expire worthless (food for thought).
Do the due diligence and believe in what you're about to do. Then buy the stock, dollar cost average downward or upward and hope for the best.
