Key words from your post "admitidly, i have traded this all wrong".
cddirect - there is a difference between trading and investing, traders often times scrape the bottom of the barrel for pennies, good systems are only on the money 50% of the time and most traders do not actively "trade" in a defined system.
Investors know better than to sweat the daily, monthly movements. Stock selection and investment decisions are made long term be it three months or three to 5 years.
Appreciate the fact that you at least admitted your position/interest but the result is not a reflection of the company or the executives. It is a reflection of the system that your using to trade and aparently from your post - your not satisfied with your own trading system.
