Just wondering what are some of the stocks you got wrong, where you perhaps sold at a loss thinking it was sinking only to have it zoom up straight after, or vice-versa.
Here are a few of my recent ones.
After the big drop in JHX I thought it would bounce back. However, it continued to fall and on the news of potential asbestos payouts I decided to sell. Almost immediately afterwards it bounced back up to $5.60.
Similar story with RMD. I waited for the bounce back but on the fall to almost $6.00 decided to sell out. The very next day it started to rise.
Likewise VRL. There was one lower day after I sold and then the recovery I was waiting for - even bigger than expected.
With MAP I did make a gain, but it looked like a head and shoulders top forming so I decided to jump the gun on the right shoulder and sell out. A day or two later it gapped up and is still rising.
I know you can't win them all, but these were so close. Of course if I had held them for that extra day or two, they would have done the same thing in the other direction .
