I'm just doing a little nibbling too for now... just picked up four more that look good to me after the opening bell -- LyondellBasell, Exxon, Kohl's and Franklin Templeton Investments...My biggest gamble of the group is T. Rowe Price which I picked up for $77 and change... we'll see how that goes.
Now's a good time to buy since stocks have taken a hit recently due to ongoing geopolitical tensions. Just placed my order for some EMC, T. Rowe Price, Nielsen and Dentsply. Will buy more depending on what markets do today.

not losses! unrealized negative gains!!! this is true! with that little cookie around the straw...
Shoot I can't make it tonight due to a prior commitment but I hope everyone has fun and see you at the next one!
I hope you don't eat there...wow you're not kidding -- a sea of red... fml.
Yes! Loss aversion... and the endowment effect. I used to hate selling losers too, but psychologically I try to sell myself on "tax harvesting" to rationalize realizing losses because it is hard to be impartial. With stocks (unlike gambling in Vegas where the money is just gone), there's (usually) always a chance that your money will come back (like SkinnyGoomba's oil stocks) unless of course you buy a company like WorldCom like I did back in the day.Dow up over 17,000...
