Thank you kindly, Karen, for you thoughtful and civil reply. I really need to recover my losses and make some major money, if I am going to live much beyond my 77th B-Day, approaching soon! I figure the best stocks for explosive gains are in bio-tech( as well as great losses!), but which? I read W. Buffet has some CUR. I have NBS( at a slight loss) and a few other health related stocks. Anyone have some good prospects they care to share? Thank you.
