What Snuffy is leaving out inside his long winded bag of literacy is that he's continually (over at least a year now) pointing out my mistakes and accusing me of being irresponsible. Fact is, I've been saying it like it is for the past 4 yrs on BTGC - he just doesn't want to hear it. (Seems to think he's pretty clever too)
All you do is bitch about buying at $16 ... look at the chart, you could have sold at $20 or $21. 25%-30% profit. But just like Snuffy points out ... you apparently choose to not lower your cost basis. Double your position now and you'd have a cost basis of $10+. I rarely post here anymore due to the whining ... take responsibility for YOUR actions ... I doubt anyone put a gun to your head to buy BTGC.
You've fallen into the very trap Snuffy's laid out for you (me).
1) About a year ago I got in a posting match (probably snuffy again) re how few opportunities we've had in 4 years to sell at $16 price. I backed that up by researching Yahoo stock price history. Do a little yourself. 2) I choose to "not lower my cost basis" because I don't want to own this stock. It's a small time trader - nothing more. My original reasons for buying it were false. 3) The way I take resp for my actions is by sharing my factual experience owning BTGC over 4 years. Complaining is in order and until BTGC takes more to heart loud & clear that it's shareholder(s) are disgruntled and leaving the ship and why, nothing will change. 5) I bought over 4 years ago which, instead of challenging me, you might start listening to.
