Because it has a much better chance of making a significant appreciation in value(stock price) than it does in depreciating significantly in value. I'm pretty sure that is why most people buy stocks. If you truely don't see any upside potential than I think maybe you should take up another passtime.
LMAO Now pay attention. I didn't say "Why do people buy stocks" I said " Why would anybody want to buy this stock" So just curious when did you see up side to this stock when it was at $12, $10, $8. Next time you respond to a post, try reading the post slower or have someone read it to you.
