Well, we bought 200 shares yesterday at about $ 11 per share. We love Holland America and plan to cruise again, hopefully, in the very near future. The stock market is always a "crap shoot" -- you could wait and hope for a decline or wait and see it increase (hopefully) and still miss out as you waited too long. You need to decide on what you want to spend and whether the wait is worth it. My motto is" early bird gets the worm" -- do I lose sleep over missing the $ 8 low >?? -- yes and no-- just feel at what I spent is "ok" with me.
