and you deserve to gloat now. I am just glad that I only bought 120 shares of this stock and I never dollar costed down as I have been known to do. Anyhow, RL has not been a good investment thus far but I am still holding my 120 shares.
Remember, RL is still making money and there are far worse investments out there. Sometimes it takes stocks years to get back to the earnings line, but eventually they always do. Right now I think that RL is behind the earnings line. However, as you have said, there are much better investments than RL.
Even though you were correct 23 months ago, just knowing that RL would be a poor investment doesn't make one rich. I hope that you also knew that DELL, MSFT, AOL, EMC, CSCO, ORCL, and SUNW (just to name a few big name tech stocks) would all get you many times your money in the past 23 months. I invested in all of these except CSCO and SUNW. I have not held them all 23 months but I am up quite a bit on all of them.
