This was a lesson in "wait till the earnings come out before you buy the stock". I held it till it came back up, but because i had to hold money in a loser for so long, i missed out on several stocks that could have been making me money. This is why Tim cuts losses quickly. If the stock comes back in a couple days, you can always re-enter! But if you're holding dead weight, you can't enjoy the other stocks that are popping while you're waiting for this one to recover!
