I'm a retired Hughes Aircraft / Raytheon corp financial planning & cost accounting manager. I have a USC MBA & a Cal State Northridge Economics undergraduate degree. My very first stock purchase was Pan Am through Charles Schwab in 1982. At the time I viewed myself as a long term investor but sold after 6 weeks because I could not cope with the stress of 100 Pan Am shares with an approximate value of $600 US dollars. I recall calling Scwab 3 to 4 times a day asking for a Pan Am stock quote. How times have changed!!!
