All that is happening is a slow crawl back to where we were. I feel better because of how far the market has recovered, but I'm still down a bunch.

A LONG time ago, I bought some shares of Boeing in my IRA. Not a lot, but it has done amazingly well. When the market was tanking, I decided it wouldn't be a bad time to take some of my profits, and put the $ in cash type investment. I was still working to get a better balance of fixed investments to equities. No need to be greedy, right? I sold a little less than 1/2 of what I had. I'm OK with what I did, except for the fact that the shares are up about $100.00 over what I sold it for... I guess what goes up will eventually come down again....

I'm very close to being even with the previous high.

Reached about the same high about 11/7 and 12/3 and pulled back both times . I'm thinking it may be another top.
Guess time will tell .

Side story from the broader market place. I guess it's safe enough at this point to speak it out loud and not totally JINX myself! VFF - Individual stock I have in a non-IRA trading account. It's been built up and used at times for the "OH BOY" moments when something unexpected comes up.

I will let y'all do your own due diligence on it but as of right now the market cap is 500M. It was about 300M when I looked at it for the first time. Earnings release is on March 13th. Not sure if I will have any extra funds to put to work 1/2 the day before & possibly 1/2 after earnings are released. I am not sure why I am so fixated on this company and so convinced at its potential. It's different from Amazon in the early days, or Netflix transitioning from DVD to streaming and well forget Bitcoin!
- It's a company that has been in business for 30 years and is transitioning to a market I hope for a number of years out net healthy margins and propel the company forward vs. the cut throat margins of tomatoes, peppers & cucumbers.

That sucker took off like a rocket in the last year. How do you account for that?
