    PNRA has gone up in price from $34 to $195/share with only one pause in the increase since 2008.

    One has to ask is it really worth 600% more than in 2006?

    And even if you answer "yes," can it sustain that that sort of 85% growth/year growth in this watered-down economy? With the market on Bernanke-Buying "steroids," maybe but then the "liver" fails and any kind of prosperity returns, it seems more likely to follow the general market (which has generally been bereft of a price correction commensurate with its 280% increase over 5 years) down.
