    Sometimes you just know

    A few years ago when I decided to look for something other than a kitchen, I worked for a fortune 100 company. I was offered stock at the time. Sold off most of my stocks when needing money a few years back (kept 1 so I could buy more later on) The last 6 mo. I kept thinking I should buy some, Kept watching it. I watched it go from 12.oo slowly to 30 something. Well today it jumped over 4.00 (ended at 3.00). It keeps eating at me.

    Some days it just sux to know what you should be doing.

    Ty for letting me do some venting.

    I used to play the markets and I know exactly what you're talking about. I can tell you from a lot of experience that the coulda, shoulda, wouldas can drive you crazy. You've got to learn to let go and look forward. I know it's not easy, but you'll sleep a lot better.

    My boss sold off his Apple stock in the late 90s. I can't remember how much he paid and how many shares he had but just for fun I punched in the calculations and if he would have held onto it he would have profited over $1,000,000. I don't think I could handle the shoulda-woulda-couldas.

    To me it's like people who go to the track or the casinos. You only hear about the winners. There's alway going to be good choices and bad choices . Just try to choose wisely. Start saving and investing early and often.

    To me this is a long term thing, to let it just sit. It just kills me that I missed the opportunity, and was watching it happen. Mrmnms going to work is a gamble. I don't go to the track, casino, but I do gamble with other things in life. This is a investment that has been killing me for a while. I had to sell most stocks when it was at 12.00. It hurts me that I didn't buy. As for it being a gamble the stock has been under valued for years, its just the market in that sector has been low. With education you minimising your gamble.
