    If you just discovered this stock?

    I fit the description. I am trying hard to develop the discipline to stop trading, and become a buy and hold income investor. I made my money trading. At the end of October, I discovered a recommendation for AYR here: http://www.dividenddetective.com/. I bought a bunch of income-producing equities. On 11/1/2007, I bought 1000 shares of AYR at $31.87 (Ouch!). On 3/22/2008, BIR Research upgraded AYR to their highest recommendation: Buy, Most Favorable. Their summary: "Strong Performance Ahead." On 3/24/2008, I bought 1000 more at 13.77. I hope doubling down was not simply throwing good money after bad. If I am really stupid, please tell me gently.

    • I watched this stock for several months. When I listened to the latest quarterly conference call and it was stated that they had sufficent cash flow to pay the dividend I bought. What happened between the call on Feb 22 and March 24 when the dividend was announced? Either the management wasn't completely forthcoming(lied) on the conference call or they didn't understand what was happening with their own business. Scary either way.
