All these years later, Fatso Alan's original position is a big loser. He took his "pilot position" at $33 per share. NINE years later, it is underwater. Aside from being the very worst human-like being on earth, he is a bad stock prognosticator.
Die, fatso, die. I am more than 10 years younger, be assured that I will celebrate your inevitable death.
That, detractor, is what happens when you invest in a company with no idea of the company fundamentals (see GE's involvement with financials) and less than no idea of the factors that can affect share prices. It becomes difficult to make money when your head is planted in a location where the only way to see where you are going is through your navel.
