    You would not believe....

    I'm down 9% on JNJ which violates my sell rule, but in this case I'm hanging on.

    • Crazyhorse1 : I feel your stress... no I am not a psychic. I am undergoing similar stress to some extent.

      But I have taken steps to neutralize the stress and am now pretty much stress free. My stress comes from the fact that at any given moment I hold only one stock in my portfolio. To further up the ante (as if that alone is not kamakazi...) I use 50% margin. My brokerage house hold 45% maintenence on cocenterated positions. That basically gives me 5 point leeway (not much)... Talk about stress? Yeah! I have lived with it -joy of victory and agony of defeat.

      when the stock is putting in a bottom, I become very active on the board... so many people quit digging within couple feet of the Gold Vein because they became discouraged. After putting in the bottom the stock will rise...

      There is always calm after the STORM but NOT for boats that capsized during the storm.

      My 43+ yrs of one stock jock backs me up when i tell you,"THE SUN WILL COME OUT TOMORROW" It's ok! stocks fluctuate. we know that. Even good ones go down at times but ultimately value prevails. All I can say is keep faith. But if you have some rules to discipline your RISK CONTROL... I can't comment on that. Firstly, I don't know you that well. Secondly it's none of my business.

      In parting to summerize : 9 months from now all this pain and mess JNJ is in right now will be a distant memory.

      Good luck to all the longs! May the force be with you!
