This stock will always perform poorly in a down market. I admit that it has done disproportionately bad as of late. The stock has a credit rating of something in the C's so as soon as any kind of volatility or fear hits the market JRCC is one of the first stocks to be jettisonned from any hedge fund's portfolio. There's no fundemental reason why it's crashed this low other than the global slowdown. But that's actually the reason I like this stock. There seems to be a fire sale every 6 months on it for reasons that are external to the company. I think I'll be glad to own it in about three months.
