Speaking from bitter experience, stops aren't much help with a gap up like that!

Re: Probably regret this, but...

Well the gap at the open was just @54,3 and close @59,25 quite a long way to go (10%...). So the stop could / would have provided some protection, though I admit that it is not always the case. Especially on long positions where bad news can lead to an open kind of 25% (or more) below the previous COB.

I'd like to add that until the release of the news Q4/2005 after the close on the 2nd which brewer did not have (or is he an insider ?), this stock did not look appealing on the long side based on all information discounted so far by the market (and exposed by brewer) it was drifting downwards.

Could still be a bear trap. I would need more to open a LONG.
Let's wait and see.

Just pushing this thread back up, now that the stock price has slid back down into solid bargain territory (IMO). I bought some more today.

Like I said, I'd probably regret mentioning an individual equity, and thanks (?) to CFB, I do.

Re: Probably regret this, but...

That's OK, CFB, I'm not offended. The pic of the rhino was worse than anything you said, by far.

Yup, I'm gonna make mistakes picking stocks once in a while; that's life. The good as far outweighed the bad, but it seems like the bad is what everyone (including me) remembers most clearly. The hard part is getting past that and keeping yourself rational and emotionally detached enough to make good decisions.
