    Clearly the impending market domination of Initiative Q is responsible.

    I'm down over 50% now. If I hadn't been so opposed to paying short term capital gains, I would have sold at about 5x return.

    it'll come back

    Not that that means you shouldn't have sold it back then and then bought back in when it goes even lower...

    Still cultivating it.

    To paraphrase a smarter guy from this thread: the market will probably go up or down today.

    Lance Armstrong says it was dropping 100k into Uber years ago that has kept him financially viable.

    Added to my Vanguard total market and primecap positions. Still think there will be more buying opportunities down the road, but have capital to deploy if that plays out.

    Here's hoping I ever have a private company investment turn into a $100B company like Armstrong.
