    just sold

    this P.O.S. Nothing but down since I made the mistake of buying it at 45 a week ago. What a stinking loser over the past few days. There seems to be a mass exodus out of this piece of garbage.

    • You are right investor0329, this is a traders market and will continue to be for some time. You are not going to see a straight up bull market like the 80,s and 90,s with valuations so high.

      We are in a stock trader and stock pickers market.

    • Yeah, I agree with you......

      most of the Tech stocks have become trading stocks now......in order to stay in the game.....you gotta trade it....you can't buy and hold tech any more.....

      Wall street is scamming lots of retail investors......SEC is locking down some more rules...to help the little investor.....hopefully it will do some good.

      ok.

    • dont blame anyone and stop whining..its very unattractive and you give your gender away...never buy again any stock with buying a put..this stock does not have puts...stay away....next time buy tol and AT THE SAME TIME buy a put for the next month at the closest price you pay for the stock..tol is 30 buy the 30 june put and then forget it for the month...all you can lose is the price of the put if it goes to 25...get it....and as it goes up buy more puts with some of the profit....simple...best to you..DISCLAIMER..i LOST MILLIONS IN THE TECH BUBBLE...NO PUTS USED...

      • <<never buy again any stock with buying a put..>>

        Are you aware that buying a stock and a protective put is identical to buying a call? Would you say that buying calls with 5 weeks to expiration is conservative investing?

        You lost millions?!?!
        Well..then how smart can you be?
        If I had millions to lose..I wouldn't even bother with the stock market.
        I'd have it in tbonds..guaranteed...live off the interest in the Greek Isles...and the Caribbean...and forget all this.

    • The problem you had is that you didn't buy it a 34 as I did exactly two weeks earlier pal on March 8th! Look at RYL and MTH...almost identical charts over the past months and years, some industry. Have interest rates increased? Have folks lost interest in a permanent roof over their heads and builds equity? Has the population stopped growing or available space increased? Has the number one way that most of us become millionaires changed from real estate? No, No, No, No, and No. Therefore, I reckon by selling you just made a bo bo their buddy. As my favorite actor James Garner always used to say that his "pappy" always said "No guts-no glory". Patience dude and SITTING TIGHT on good stocks is the answer for long term stock payoffs. Period.

        Actually..once this pig dropped 10% from where I got it..it is out.

        Read Maximum Adverse Excursion...by John Sweeny.

        I did an analysis of my past trades..both winners and losers..regarding what happens at different potential stop levels.

        MTH is a dog (for me)..and is out. Better to put my money to work elsewhere than on a proven dog (for me).
