To be sure, I have owned some clunkers in the past. However, when I bought those stocks I knew that they were extremely risky and that I could lose all my money. For the most part these stocks were on the Bulletin Board or Pink Sheets which by definition is the domaine of super risky equities. However, when I purchased Evergreen Energy (EEE) I didn't believe that I was buying a super risky stock since it was on NASDAQ National Market. Boy was I wrong!!! That's why EEE is the worst stock I ever lost money on.
