The Oct. 13 Dear Dagen column,

Readers Debate Best and Worst Fund Trends, incorrectly said 50% margin would buy $150 worth of stock with $100 down. Actually, 50% margin will buy $200 of stock in that situation. The article also said that if the $100 investment falls to $50 in value, you've lost $100 rather than $50. Instead, it should have said if the stock falls in value by 50%, you've lost $100, your entire cash investment. Without margin, you'd have $50 left of your $100 cash investment.
