I agree Yahoo user, and I just became a new LAS holder. I'm surprised at they reaction here as they are showing progress, at least top line growth. There are headwinds but fundamentally they are strong, no? You have the japanese/chinese problems, the cost of expansion, and imo the worst overhang is the small cap china perception problem. WHen will people start to trust chinese companies again after the string of really obscene fraudulent behavior of some? Does that take another couple years? It's not often that you see value priced fundamentals in a country growing like China, and they can't all be frauds, can they?

Of these stocks you only need to own the ones that have the two-must-have-traits that all past and current hall of fame blockbuster gainers displayed.
Owning laggards is really similar to owning the worst performing players in the any sports league.
