OK - you said: 1) you're 18 years old, 2)you bought a high-risk stock, 3) after doing DD (which means what?), and 4) you haven't checked your account in almost 5 months. If I were you I'd ask myself what my risk-tolerance is, whether the market is high or low at this point and where I think it's headed considering earnings expectations and so forth, and what is going on in the world that might affect the markets (think globally and politically). This is just to name a few. Sarcasm aside, it's real money and money for your future. Invest wisely in good quality names and DON'T LISTEN TO PUNDITS WHO MAY HAVE AN AGENDA (they're out there, so don't be naïve). Good luck!
