If we get a internet correction then it will
likely be across the board and will hit all tech stocks.
Even AOL will be hurt. The day the NASDAQ dropped AOL
was hit hard just like all others.
may be better off. But if it drops only 40% compared
to 50% and 60% for the real high flyers will it
really comfort you? Don't fool yourself into thinking
something stupid. Best plan is to buy more if it drops
because you believe it is a good company. But believe me,
it can drop. It wouldn't be the first great company
hit by sector problems. Look at the ERP group. SAP
and Peoplesoft had growth rates of 70% plus. The
stocks were doubling. Then, Y2K worries hit. Peoplesoft
LOST 80% of its value. Trust me. It can happen even to
good companies. You can't fight it either.

what you've learned from your experiences.

Up and down and up and down, boy fishing off of
San Francisco bay is less rocky than AOl has been in
past 3 weeks. I am down more than $90,000 from april.
I know AOL will be at $170 before the next
earnings, but is sure is hard as hell to sit here on my
hands. And that is what everyone has to be deciplin to
do. Let me confess, last week I soled all my AOl
shares at $125 and bought MSPG. Well, we all know what
happened on monday, Zoom, buy the time I decided to jump
back in on tuesday, my lovely AOL was at $137. Off
