it must be tempting for you to get some cheaper shares and average down, but it might be worth your while to hold on till it stops dropping. All my shares are red this week, but a bit of blue in sight!
This has just gone back to prices in early September, so we've lost 2 m
This has gone back to the price it was at in early September, so we've lost 2 months growth on the sp. I was going to get into this when it was in low 60's and climbing nice and steadily, but waited and as soon as I get in, it starts to head south - rapidly!!!!

Civil engineering group Costain (COST) told investors that trading remains in line with expectations, while the firm's order book hit a new record and the balance sheet boasted cash of over 100 million pounds. The group's order book has risen to 2.7 billion pounds from 2.5 billion pounds at the end of the first half, and over 800 million pounds of revenue is secure for 2010, representing around 80% of gross revenue estimates. Broker Arbuthnot said its sum-of-the-parts analysis implies that the core Civil Engineering business is trading at a significant discount. The broker has a 'strong buy' stance and a 40p price target for the shares, which finished 0.5p higher at 29.75p.

A planning application for the £4bn redevelopment of London's Battersea Power Station has been informally submitted to council officials by Real Estate Opportunities, the Jersey-based property developer controlled by Treasury Holdings' Richard Barrett and John Ronan.
The two Irish millionaires are believed to have submitted plans for Europe's largest brick building to Wandsworth Council last week, it has been reported.
The project, which would be the largest planning submission made in London, apart from those associated with the 2012 Olympics, has previously run into problems with officials -- who fear it will destroy the English capital's skyline. The latest plans, first unveiled last month, do not affect views of the Houses of Parliament.
London's Mayor Boris Johnson rejected previous plans, which included a 1,000-foot high glass tower that would have become the highest building in London.
The Irish duo want to convert the power station's interior into 650,000 sq ft of offices, an event space, and a 2,000-seat conference centre with flats on the roof.
Real Estate Opportunities bought the derelict property on the River Thames in 2006 for £400m and hopes to begin construction work there in 2012, the year of the London Olympics.
The power station has four 107-metre tall smokestacks and appears on the cover of Pink Floyd's 'Animals' album. Previous proposals for the site included a theme park and a shopping mall that would
Just found this on Google, been waiting for these to start rising for a while, hopefully this'll do it.
British retinal imaging firm's sales for the first three quarters of fiscal 2009 slip 1 percent to $72 million, but its strategy to increase pay-per-patient revenues begins to pay dividends.
Optos plc's sales during the first three quarters of fiscal 2009 slipped 1 percent to $72.2 million, but its strategy to boost pay-per-patient revenues gained traction.
The British retinal imaging firm, which has operations in Marlborough, Mass., said its pay-per-patient revenues during the nine months ended June 30 rose 3 percent to $70 million, compared with $68.2 million during the same period last year, as it put a new sales strategy in place to shift its focus from large capital equipment sales.
Optos, which posted sales of $73.1 million during the first nine months of fiscal 2008, also cited a deal with eyecare benefits provider VSP Global, the largest eye-health insurance provider in the United States. The company said it expects the agreement to "help drive the adoption of §,a href="http://www.optos.com/us/Patients/optomap-vs-Conventional-Retinal-Exam-Technologies2/">optomap eye examinations amongst both VSP members and doctors."
CEO Roy Davis added that the company slashed its overhead costs by nearly 20 percent and is on target to meet its full-year guidance.
I'm so glad I sold when I did, one of my few good timings! I'm not tempted at the moment to get back in, I've been in twice and got a bit of profit so think I'll quit while ahead, but I just like to keep an eye on it from time to time. Do you think it's got a chance?
Nothing seems to be moving much at the moment, must be the old adage about going away till St Ledgers Day! GL to all who held on :)
just to say thank you for selling! I thought I was the only one that happened to! Do you think it's going much higher and worth holding a bit longer? I've just got back into profit with it and don't want to lose it if it dips again. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
The guys on here might not have known who Daintree were a few months ago, but since they've come on the scene, people like GedW will have found out about them, so they have 'known about them before today'. Myself, I didn't wait to find out and I sold out @ 24.5 when they first started to move up, and took a 50% profit on my small investment - I'm a bit of a profit tart! A bird in the hand and all that!!!!
I bought these in Feb at 16p and sold on Tuesday when they started going up @ 24.25, which was almost 50% profit I was happy with. I didn't want to chance them going down again as it took a while to rise, but have been amazed to see the rise this week. Following the statement, they could take a dive again next week.
