Any car I've ever owned (STi specifically) :lol:

I don't think I ever saw it as a moneymaker though!

I have FRE stock that was gifted to me when I worked there. It's pretty worthless now.

Worst I've had was 35.8%, you have to go back more than a year to get anything higher than that.

I have lost about 48% of what I do have in the market since investing it about a year and a half ago.
Luckily most of my money I have kept in cash.

my 401k I never bothered to switch out of money market, so I am ok there. (horray for laziness!)

is anyone retiring really soon? If the company goes bankrupt, thats one issue, but if they're bought out there's probably a few options available to you. Stocks can rise in value as much as they can plummet. So unless you're day trading, hanging on to some of your investments may not be as bad as you think.

Bought at 165. Dammit I was thinking about doubling down last night too since there are good rumors afoot. But lately they've been nothing but good news and are tanking like everyone else! :? I just can't bring myself to do it.

My mutual fund and 401k (mostly large cap stocks) are down ~22% from end of last year but the biggest individual fund is down ~45%. All of my liquid savings (about half) are in money markets so I'm not really worried about it.

In the grand scheme of things, we really aren't that bad off. I remember that drop in '02 being labeled a "market correction".

It would help if it could be made to rain as well. Full attention on the road. Guaranteed." -Jack Baruth

my guess is we'll level off at 9500 and then begin another build to 16000 for a few years, then drop back to 12ish, then raise higher than 16. that's how a lot of stocks work, at least. constant up and down with the highs and lows being a bit higher than last time.

a lot of analysts are predicting that it will keep going down until it hits 7500.

Just looked at my portfolio, my worst single stock is down 69% this year. My only stock that is up for the year is Netflix
