DTAMP has gotten a swift kick in it's posterior this week, and it definitely hurt.

Its bottom beating takes the form of a stock trade gone terribly awry.

I decided to take one more chance with Thornburg Mortgage Inc (TMA) and that turned out to be a very bad idea. This is how the trade turned out.

DTAMP Equities Plan Report:

05/02/08 - Buy - 487 shares of TMA @ $1.16 p/s - Total $564.92
05/07/08 - Sold - 487 shares of TMA @ $0.9205 p/s - Total $448.28
Total $448.28 - ($0.02) Fees = $448.28
Net (Loss) of -20.65071% in the Amount of (-$116.66)

On May 6th, Shares of Thornburg Mortgage Inc. fell...after the jumbo mortgage lender...urged its shareholders to pass a plan to increase the number of shares it can sell in an effort to remain in business.

...board of directors is asking its shareholders to approve a plan that would increase the number of shares of stock in the company to 4 billion from 500 million

Current shareholders holdings would be diluted by 90 percent under the terms of the deal.

Well needless to say the shares plummeted to a low of $0.71 a share. Fortunately they then rebounded to the mid $0.90's where I exited the trade taking a 20% loss. This is a heavy hit to DTAMP and very discouraging but it is the nature of the venture when trading risky stocks as TMA has become. As a result I will be needing to reign in the risk at this point and re-evaluate the programs direction.

Some additional funds were obtained during the ensuing days, ($3.70) in redemptions and ($0.06) in found change.

Also some good news, I did manage to find the Instruction Manual, Online, for the Radio Shack Micronta Discovery2 Metal Detector - Treasure Finder Catalog Number 63-3004
