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...

Nice jump -- $OREX up over 7% today!
