    What will my investment be worth in 10

    I bought small position of 50 shares at 133 in my
    retirement account first of week. Would like to round it off
    at 100 shares. Is now the time or is it going
    significantly lower?? WHAT WILL 100 SHARES NOW BE WORTH IN 10

    • In 10 years your investment will be worth
      $71,237.48. Don't forget that 48 cents.

      I'm being
      sarcastic. I understand that we were all new to investing at
      some point and I don't mean to sound harsh, but based
      on the questions you've asked, you seem to be
      particularly naive about investing. If we could answer your
      questions, we wouldn't be sitting here on a computer posting
      to Yahoo. We'd be on a yacht somewhere with a bunch
      of supermodels.

      My question for you is: why
      did you buy JDSU?

      Don't buy it because you
      read something about it in last month's Money magazine
      and you saw that it did really well last year. Find
      out what the company actually does, find out the
      potential of that market, and look at their competitors.
      That will be a good start.

      In my opinion, JDSU
      is the clear market leader in an industry with
      enormous growth potential. I think it (and thus the stock
      ultimately), will do extremely well. But guess what? Stocks go
      down on some days too. Maybe it will be lower next
      week, or next month. Maybe it will never be this low
      again. If you find out for sure, let me know. All I can
      say is that I am pretty confident in 3-7 years it
      will be significantly higher than it is today. That is
      as much "certainty" as you can get in the stock

    • stuff..your 100 shares yes buy some more and get it over with..those 100 shares at 120,00will go to 240.to480 960 back to 800 3.2 in 10 yrs...easy ..see ya on the yacht...
