Pandorabelle: Looks like you held. After I saw what it did this week, I was worried you'd given up at 60 cents based on all of us who are screaming "no hope, only hype". However, if you think it has potential, I guarantee you'll see all these gains vanish and be back at 60 cents before you know it, so it really won't matter if you don't take some profit. This is still a pump and dump. I received another mailer on it this week, probably responsible for the jump. But what it did Friday is precisely the reason I don't try shorting these p&d's.
Good luck trying to make an exit call.
Excuse me for jumping into your conversation with wizard, but I recently heard an interview with Moe Ansari and Hilary Kramer, author of “The Little Book Of Big Profits From Small Stocks”. It was very interesting and I intended to buy the book but forgot about it till I read your post. The interview is dated 12/28 on marketwrapwithmoe.com as a free modcast. I usually swing trade ETFs but want to start looking for great start ups and was going to start with her book.
I also have been holding some ANIK for almost a year. Got into QCOR when it was $8 and now it's 40 plus, but it took a few years and several FDA disappointments.
Buying Stevia was a mistake. They are taking your money. Soon the company will disappear into nothingness and Pure Circle, which sells on the London Stock Exchange, will be growing. This sweetener has an absolutely profitable future, but not on the NYSE.
