Put a thousand dollars in. Put five hundred dollars in. But you put 12 thousand dollars in...even to this day, Suze Orman would never invest in something that was speculative if I thought that losing it would affect me.
Unless you are a sophisticated investor, you should never buy a stock that is under 15 dollars a share. Anything under 15 dollars a share is speculative and could very easy go off the charts and it's away. 15 dollars a share or above, pretty legitimate. Only want to invest with something that is with a major brokerage from discount firm, the stock itself is traded on the stock market, it is legitimate.
