So, I dug up my old paper printed trade receipts....I started recreational trading out of High School, lost alot, learned alot, still have lots more to learn.
Here is my buying history on this rabid dog:
2/24/04 - 1,000 @ 2.55 = $2,550
5/14/04 - 1,000 @ 1.36 = $1,360
9/24/04 - 1,000 @ 1.02 - $1,020
11/30/04 - 1,000 shares @ 1.05 = $1,050
3/3/11 - 2,000 @ .20 = $400
Current PPS = .05
Dow, I would say your posts over the last 9 years provided the fictitios fuel for my imagination that this company was going to make it. American Express, the US Governement blah blah blah.
Now I am left with 7,000 shares that are worth $350. My investment? $5,330 and 9 years.
For anyone reading this, thinking that there is something to be had, move on to the next stock. Dow has been pumping this con dom for 10 years, probably shorting all the way down. Who else has time of day to post as he has? Hah, Dow is probably on the board, riding this thing into the ground.
I would like to thank you Dow for teaching me a great lesson in life, while I was still young enough to afford losing that money.
Selling now, for the tax benefit...just embarrassed to show my accountant the biggest loser story ever.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
I have been in for a short while, but have no problem holding as long as there is promise. I've held stocks for years....
My average pps is $1.64....I gave up on the shares and havent been following the company. So, do you followers have any advice if I should hold on or should I suck the loss for 2013?
I fell like a donkey - I purchased more yesterday thinking that there would be decently good news, and had a open sell order if it would hit $4.12 to protect....and it sold me out of my position.
Should I jump back in? Mind numb...I was up nicely yesterday and was thinking to sell and walk away, instead went in deeper and got burned.
Wow DOW!!! Now that the last fan standing (LFS) has been neutralized, is there any chance of recovering the thousands that I invested years back in 2004 buyng the stock at 3 and change due to that business week stock pump loser recommending it? Should I just swallow hard?
Left this in the dark recesses waiting for a miracle...
MAJOR Uptrend!!! Hate to sound sarcastic, it is not my nature. If this is an uptrend, there is a lonely pill I can introduce you to.
Thank you; I am holding. I've been on great waves, so I've got the stomach for it, but was hoping this was a find that would be kinder.
Good luck to all; I am in with 2,000 shares. Small to start in, get to get comfy with it all.
I am with you; especially since I started buying in at $2.17 years back.
In this go green marketing, this stock is just not moving!
Been holding on since 2008....when I see such a deal go for a fresh company, the question has to be asked the other way - what do the Russians see in CPST that turned them to go with someone else?
OH NO!!! Remember what happened when Obama mentioned Cappy in a speech? It tanked...stay away Governement ppl....you see guys, they get honorued for not making money, just like the governement makes no money.....
One who does the same thing over and over and expects different results. I've been holding this for YEAR all I ask for is something respectable....Twitter can trade for a fortune without showing a profit and not even having a real profit...and this management cant get the PPS to provide shareholders with some value?!?!
gotta remember that nobody is right 100% of the time...Cramer makes it like he knows everything, jack of all stocks, master of none. I would like to see his buys and sells, not just what he says.
Ditto. They say you know you are on the right track when there are footsteps alongside you...I agree this is a $10 at least stock.
So, I've lost a lot with UDW, having held it for many years.When I get the pang to see whats up in this discussion area, I always see action from Dow & Friends. Question: As this stock simply does not move, how are you guys making money following it, and if you aren't, why are you here?
