Shareholders should have slipped Brownlee a copy of Malthus. He didn't learn that the population is growing and people need to eat. He sold POT. Boy, will he be sorry.
Fortunately, you know the truth, abracadaberaman. Another wasted q can be discounted as easily as the hours you spend here. All will be well. Some day. Maybe. Unless Malthus didn't figure ag technology would outstrip... Nah...
Q: What's the difference between preaching the virtues of patience and an inability to manage risk? Careful, trick question.
Post on, ab. Discount those hours you spend here, posting, checking to see if anyone answers, replying, whipping those who disagree, threatening them with a nuclear "ignore," repeat. Discount your time down to $0.00.
Q: should I have more respect for you or for the Guatemalan illegals who do the demo work in my neighborhood for minimum wage and no benefits? Careful, not a trick question.
POT down 28% in six months? Better Q: What's it down from its five-year high? Oh, my. POT is down more than 50% since its 2011 highs. In that same time frame the S&P is UP 86%, the NAZ... Forget it, you don't want to know.
YOUR TOTAL LOSSES, POT's decline + hours wasted here posting drivel + ENORMOUS PROFITS FOREGONE by rejecting the data-based advice to buy the tracking indexes that contain some of the most progressive companies in the world, indexes in the portfolios of non-stock pickers who don't waste their lives checking to see if someone responded to their posts, widows who open their statements once a quarter: conservatively, a 130% REVERSAL OF FORTUNE had you bought the S&P.
You're a fool, abracadabaraman. Doyle, forty-eight hours after he spoke to Morgan and pumped the future, told the world that he was shutting down mines beginning immediately. In so doing he generously did investors a HUGE FAVOR, HE TOLD THEM THAT SUPPLY EXCEEDS DEMAND, SELL YOUR POT SHARES.
abracadabarman, you have nothing to do and all day to do it, take a break from re-arranging the deck chairs, calculate how much money you lose/post. After all, you've discounted your labor costs for the hundreds of hours you spend looking up the reasons ferts aren't going anywhere, posting them, checking to see if anyone has responded to your post, then of course you have to wax eloquent in response to their response.... You've discounted your considerable labor to zero. Greeters at Wal-Mart optimize their time better than you.
Years ago I told you that picking stocks is a game for investors who don't get married to positions, you ought to buy the Vanguard tracking indexes. If you taken some losses and bought the indexes, you'd be sitting very pretty instead of pretending that intransigence is the same as patience, rationalizing that a decent dividend is fair compensation for losing access to your ever-diminishing capital. You can't take a loss; you don't belong in equities.
These boards are free for a reason. You wouldn't pay ten cents to post or read a post, that's how empty these boards are. Yet you're glued to this thing like a junkie is glued to junk. 1700 posts. Do yourself a favor and get out of here. You won't.
