Is your strategy is to pick a company in same sector as another company that takes a huge hit?

I moved on from them to Large caps in distressed sectors and I like that alot better. I did well with small companies, but the volatility was enough for me to get out of it, one bad news article would send investors running for the hills.

I like large cap dividend growth stocks and I try to get a good deal on them, like when BP happened I bought up more XOM since the good usually go down with the bad, but not as far.

Yes, I've done that in the past and I like it as a strategy. On the whole it's only a partial strategy.

Range: $4.40 - $4.57


I like it as a long term turnaround stock, but I think this is an indicator that the company will turn around. Unlike Nokia that buried their head in the sand, these guys are doing their best to put a decent product on the market and provide good service.

My brother just got one of their phones, his employer pays for it + the service, must admit it provides good service and the phone is sweet.

I'll be curious as to how the company is looking in another couple of years.

LOL, you got in that thing, this seems too fishy for me. Though I would have loved to be in at 2 pennies.

Haha, yeah. Just a few hundred bucks, as i'm a small timer. But yeah, would have been up like 60%.

I just need to find something to tie my money up in so i don't get tempted by that type of shit!
