Financial Horse is on the road this week, but I managed to find some time to hammer out this article. It’s a topic that’s very close to my heart, and one that I’ve been yearning to write for quite a while: The lessons that learnt from the emotional rollercoaster that is Micron.

Micron was one of the first few shares I picked up when I was starting out in investing, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. It’s also one that taught me many valuable lessons as an investor.

Basics: What is Micron?

Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MU) is:

an American global corporation based in Boise, Idaho. The company produces many forms of semiconductor devices, including dynamic random-access memory, flash memory, and solid-state drives. Its consumer products are marketed under the brands Crucial and Ballistix. Micron and Intel together created IM Flash Technologies, which produces NAND flash memory.
