Decided to invest a quarter of my 401k myself and have been pretty successful along with other holdings outside of it - update that to really successful. Used a quarter of my 401k to quadruple the total 401k. One more big hit and I can retire at 55. TEAR, PLUG helped me the most and now I am into CRDC/Cardica, Anyone with any information with regards to this company would be most appreciated. It is 53% institutionally owned and just completed its first surgery in the US with little hoopla. They have a history of success in Europe. Other sizeable personal holdings are CRDC, RMTI, SO, KEY and MEET. I now own over 10,000 shares of DXTR bought at an average of about $4.40.
