Long-time readers will remember former holding Mechel (NYSE:MTL).... I just pulled up a quote and see it is hovering just over $4. Ouch. Russia has been among the worst stock markets this year, closing their market almost on a weekly basis now. Mr. Putin didn't help Mechel either with his "interest" in the company's business practices.

This was once a near $60 stock. By "once", I mean early summer.
