Going down your loss was 48%, to go back up using the same numbers means a gain of 95%.

I have read that studies were done that proved it was easier for a penny stock to head down to zero than to climb back over a dollar.
Many here and at the other forums got in over 3 bucks and averaged down all the way, here is an example of what it would take to just break even, if they only bought at $3, no other buys along the way.
$3 all the way to .315= 89.5% loss, at current price of .49= down 83.67%
.315 back up to $3 =852.38% gain, at current price of .49= up 512.24 %
How many stocks have any of you heard of that have made a 512-850% gain? Penny stocks that have done this are as rare as hens with teeth.
This math should be at the forefront of anyone's mind in trying to decide if they want to take another bite out of the apple.
