In the following video, Motley Fool energy analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman take a question from a Fool.com reader, who asks: "I bought First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) over three years ago and subsequently lost 80% of value. I have a couple of holdings like this. Having already lost ground, I see no compelling reason to sell. Am I a Fool for waiting it out?"
