You only loose money when you sell at a price lower then your bought price. Stocks go up and down all the time especially a high beta stock. It doesn't matter if this go to $1 because when you sell it next year at $10, that's when it matters. What ever happens in between is on how much you can control your emotions. If your mind is weak and can't hold and sell at every downturn, then it's time for you to buy a CD.
