    Just re invest. You will never see it. Buy oil stocks. It can only go up.

    I know I should reinvest it but I prefer to use it for a nice get away weekend every 3 months for the wife and I.

    I thought about buying oil when it was $89 and was going to sky rocket over $100. Glad I didn't because I'd be screwed now.

    Yeah that hurts. Years ago when i was young, in my 401k at a company i worked for, I was able to and did purchase stock of that company. They proceeded to go through bankruptcy and came out as a different company with a different name(there was no buyout, just it changed during the bankruptcy). When the name changed, my stock became null and void. Over 700 shares.

    If you are going to buy energy, buy infrastructure.

    He can stand the risk ... most of us can't.
    Phillips, Exxon, BP are good buys that will be there after the shakeout.
    The newcomers and smaller companies will be decimated and bought out by the older, bigger companies.
    I like to buy established infrastructure stocks myself which are down right now but will rebound regardless of the winners.

    Just my approach.
