    • phemale60: I bought shares Friday premarket; did well and will buy more while price moves down. Wasn't Jung reason for Avon's downfall?

    • Alan Brochstein, CFA: There is some truth to that, but she gave up the CEO spot months ago. This was scheduled to happen. Jim Cramer said Hassan new - not true!

    • phemale60: Good to know. I'm still making money on it, so maybe perception is everything! Takes time to turn things around.

    • Alan Brochstein, CFA: I like the story but it could take a long time to play out. They will soon chop the dividend, but I think that the stock will be ok.

    • phemale60: I juggle a lot and sold it a few weeks ago - I will check out your blog. Could use advise, for sure. I see you write about FH!

    • phemale60: Think it's still worth buying? My best stocks are WFM, BCS and VVUS now. I've pared down with volatility to maintain - off to work!

    • Alan Brochstein, CFA: FH is NOT my kind of stock - lots of people gambling and it's very hyped

    • phemale60: Look at BCS! Glad I bought 400 shares back in August. Thought it couldn't sink further aft libor scandal. Glad didn't buy FH post pop!
