Default Who\'s right - help me settle a bet with gf, w/ poll w/o mspaint

Here's the question. I'll say which side I am on later!

>inventory
You have:
100 shares of ABC stock

>look
A stock exchange
You are inside a stock exchange. People flitter here and there, doing this and that. On a giant screen, you see a display of recently traded market prices for various securities.

In front of you stands a middle-aged man in an evening suit, top hat, tails, and monocle.

>look at screen
(the giant screen)
The screen blinks as the prices are updated in real time. You see ABC stock trading at $20.00/$20.01.

>think
You remember purchasing ABC stock at $100. Those were the heady days of the internet/covenant-lite loan/Y2K/BRIC bubble. A pang of regret gnaws at you.

>ask man about ABC
(the besuited gentleman)

"Sir! As a special offer, I am willing to buy your hundred shares of ABC stock at $40.00 per share, for a total of $4,000! If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please tell me! Thank you good sir!"

Given the information provided, of course you sell. Why couldn't buy back your 100 shares for $20 from someone else at the exchange after selling to Mr. Monocle?

Buy more shares at $20. Either it goes up or you eventually wind up owning ABC. Win/win.

Is the guy Mortimer Duke? Has the stock split 6 times since you bought it?

It's remarkable that a post with such stupid content could be so amazing.

my Q is how did you lose 80% to start off with and not cover n00b

you should have cut your losses long ago.

I say sell but you rode it out this long , it doesn't matter what you do rly
you might as well keep beating that dead horse
