I just checked. It's on it's way back down but seems to have leveled off. I'm still up about $60K. Not bad, not bad at all. There's still a long way to go though.

Sorry about the double post but I just noticed Ironman's comment.

I pulled the trailer with the ol' F350 last week and it did pretty good. I pulled it back to the dealer to have some warranty work done after our one week shakedown. I'm now making plans for some short trips to get more familiar with it when we get it back. $60K will just about buy the new F550 I just built on the Ford website. I don't think I'm going to slip that past the missus.

I guess the general population hasn't yet realized the likelihood of a SHTF situation. Once they do, they'll be buying up tons of P&G products (i.e. toilet paper) to get them through.

I didn't know that was an option. I thought you had to make your choice and ride it out for a year. If that was a possibility, I would have sold a long time ago and probably long before it hit it's high.

Many years ago when I used to buy and sell a lot the one lesson I learned the hard way is, "Don't be greedy". Take your profit when it's there and get out. That's not how I invest these days. I put my money in good, strong, stable companies with a future and and a track record and let it ride.

In the past with RCL & the rest of the cruise industry the best time to buy is mid summer when its at its lowest & sell in either jan or feb thats when most of the cruises are booked & the stocks seem to be at there highest point . The main reason it is in the red now is because of fuel costs but not due to lack of bookings .

I only bought 200 shares in august of last year at $28.47 and was lucky enough to have sold it when it hit $49.50 a share on jan 26th . I'll more then likely do the same this year only maybe another 100 shares if it continues to keep going lower .

Yup I noticed that, RCL is actually holding on perty good considering the price of fuel , but I expect it to rocket back up as soon as they figure out how to run those ships on saltwater .

Surprisingly with the economy the way it is, all of their ships are booked solid for the next 3 months .

You're looking good ... by a long way. A little contrary thinking isn't a bad thing, is it? When everyone else is buying gold, you buy silver. It worked out great for you.

I see that I'm running about 17% after a short run into the stratosphere. That's pretty good, I'm happy. In real life I would have been ecstatic.

Has it been a year already??????
