That was proven to be good riddance, wasn't it? When the sellers have been exhausted you expect a power rally finally. Only people with extreme patience would be rewarded at the end.
I have never abandoned SWC, I still hold 85 of my 401K in SWC and nearly half of my regular stock trading account in SWC. Although I am now also heavily into coal mining stocks JRCC and PCX. I missed the bulk of the huge rally in JRCC in 2007/2008 even though I caught the perfect bottom. I will not make that mistake again. I will never make the mistake of letting go of my SWC shares even for a moment, ever.
