You had the ability to participate in the financing....unless you don't have ten grand to invest. And if you do not have ten grand to invest...then what the heck are you playing the market for?? Stick with a good fund manager. Make your 10% and call it a day. These are risky stocks you play in...and most do not know how to understand RISK. Risk is not buying when Mangement buys, Risk is not buying when others are selling because of tax loss or just because they have been beaten up enough. Risk is buying a $600 million market cap company with their hopes and dreams on one unproven plant. Risk is not doing Due Diligence but buying the stock anyway. Risk is owning a stock and then stopping doing your Due Diligence. Risk is owning Bell Canada the year Deregulation happened...The stock went from $70 to $25...That is Risk...And if you do not understand how to assess it...you should not play this game!!! period full stop...
