Fear and Patience. Yeah... a few "F's" for sure. Patience?  Hmmm... a year and a half later with an investment not to sneeze at ... and a 40% plus holdings decrease in value. Yikes, it was a toss up between Mira and Mart at the time!   Hey, there's always "Dragon's Den". Wonder how mira's performance over the past year and a half would be viewed :-))  Walk from the investment here? Maybe we'll hit 11.5 cents again in December and boom off mira will go to the thirties again. Faint hope?  what the heck.  That .80 takeover is just around the corner  :-))  Maybe Santa will hit the faithful longterm investors with sacks full of cash. Here's hoping!!
