Sorry, what it means is the value of your holdings will be worth much less. These are not easy times and it appears that no company is immune to the struggles of our current economy. While I know it offers no comfort, you should know that there are many who are in the same shoes as you and they will not recover their investments. Once a bay street daryling NT is now a mere shadow of its once dominant self with 90,000 employees and a SP at its peak at $124. I guess we are in different times.
