If you've held for 4 years, you probably have bought this stock in the upper teens, and anywhere in the $20's. This stock was in the mid $30's in July of 2008. It dropped from there to $10 in a few trading day and has NEVER recovered. Kelly Martin the biggest idiot in the business, lied saying he would clear up the misunderstanding of BAP he created and Lied about with Mike Huckman--not going into this because you know what happened.
Most people were wiped out by this stock, and if they did hold, the best they are going to do is get back to a 25-70% loss at best instead, of an 85-90% loss with this stock going back to $8-12.
This stock in not heading towards ZERO because investor's are optimistic about BAP! Only a fool would think so.
Kelly is an idiot, and is the wrong man for this job, or any job. I would not bank on this stock popping 200% in one day, and if you are I think you are totally overly optomistic, and smoking something really good.
Good luck to you, but I think you are completely overpumping this stock!!!
Honestly, I'm hope longs make sheet load with this POS, but your kind of thoughts have gotten Elan into a current predicament. MMs' and option traders know exactly that thus they can continued to manipulate Elan and pocket the money for themselves.
I was once naive enough to believe that the makers as a whole is efficient and individual investors have a chance to make a fortune but I was dead wrong. With a stock like Elan, at the end of the road only management, bondholders, and private equity or BPs win! NOT THE COMMON HOLDERS!!!
