Well, push has come to worse, and worse has come to shove. I bought back GOOG at 556 and now it is being exchanged at 529. You can't pick the bottom. That's a law of nature.
But one thing worked out today. Last November, I bought a bunch of ATGP at 14.82. Then, in December, I sold it for 15.85, because oil stocks make me nervous. To my chagrin, it ran up to 20, after that. Then it started selling off a couple of weeks ago and has dropped like a rock.
Today, I bought the bunch back for 14.65. Nice. But don't worry, it closed at 14.47. The sanctity of natural law has been preserved.
