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.
