Down a penny or two every day; day after day. Starts to add up and get real old. That's often the time to buy, right when everyone is totally sick of it. Gotta admit, I'm pretty sick of it but hanging in for the long term.
It's only torture for those who have a very narrow idea about what news is and where news comes from. If your definition of "news" is a company press release announcing a new contract, it's been a long, tortuous quarter. If it's new information about trends/events that impact the company's near- and long-term potential for growth, there has been quite a bit of positive news this quarter.
