I Bought Compaq Stocks
I bought a Compaq stock (CPQ). It was recommended
to me by a friend of mine (yes, weíre still friends...). At first I was
so happy - every time I browsed my personalized Excite page I witnessed
how my stock is making money for me - let me tell you Ė this hobby can
become addictive very fast... before I even noticed it I found myself staring
at the screen and pressing the ĎReloadí button every few seconds. Watching
the figures change.
Since then the Dow fell and so did my interest. I even got to see the
red figures next to my precious CPQ stock. Today (8/6/98) the stock crossed
the $35 line and now Iím wondering if itís the right time to sell. Iíve
been so busy trying to figure out how to pick the right stock that I didnít
think that buying is only a half of the deal... - I think Iíll hold it
till it reaches $40... weíll see about that.
