    Hi Dale I’m a student of yours, I would love your opinion on a stock bought in 2000, had I know now what I know I would never had bought it(speculative stock).The stock is GCR it owes me heaps, but where I am now I don’t have a choice than to wait as they say it will peak in the next 1-2 years ( yeah right) What are your thoughts do you think there is any chance at all of this happening? Its hit it lowest 4 times in 13 months is this better than a tripler bottom ?thx Deb

      Hi Deb,

      Thanks for your question.

      I think you have answered your own question here. The stock has been in a long term downtrend since listing (16 years) and the chart suggests this is not likely to change.

      The longer you continue to hold the more opportunity lost on holding quality stocks.
