In my 45 years of experience I have learned a few things. One of them is that if person cannot stomach a 50% drop in their portfolio, he has no business investing in stocks.

Re: Arista up just 1% from Q4. Worried about it?

For those still worried about ANET's price action today, I encourage you to listen to the audio CC. It just might give you courage to the sticking point to add shares.

Today's sell off has given me a chance to add a few more ANET shares. Others may want to do the same. A year from now I doubt you will [more]
