    don't sell in panic

    I have been in and out as a WDR stockholder and got back in this month. Assuming it is best not to sell now, despite the drop in stock price today. Among other factors:
    1. According to Multex Investor and MarketGuide, WDR's return on equity over the last 5 years is more than double the average for its industry and also exceeds the S & P 500's return on equity; WDR's return on equity over the trailing twelve months also exceeds both the industry average and the S & P 500.
    2. WDR remains above its 200-day moving average.
    3. For another technical factor, the RSI does not look bad. Per Yahoo Finance, it is about 50.
