Feeling the pain today. It's my biggest indie holding and it's down like 15% intraday. Ouch.

O0 I'll get over it, boo-hoo, but thank you.

Pm has been doing awful for years . Smoking is on the decline . a simple index fund would have blown it away without having to take on not only market volatiliity but individual company risk too
