When To Sell?

I created this page with an empty content in 2015 because back then I didn't know when I want to sell my stocks as I was holding a long term view of collecting dividends in my portfolio. Just last year, I was selling some profitable penny stocks as I decided to focus on blue chips, large cap stocks and REITs only. Well, this covid19 crisis finally made me realised what was my selling conditions but I wished it was during the bull market days. During Mar 2020, the selling from covid19 crisis was hard and fast as I watched in awe over my paper losing portfolio everyday. Then I wanted to make best use of this crisis to collect really cheap dividend stocks and so I decided to sell those stocks which were still in the green but was collecting low dividends. This move helped me raised some cash over this once in a lifetime opportunity as I channeled my fund into cheaper and higher dividend stocks. Well, that was my selling condition that time. But things were in much better shape if I sell these profitable stocks during the bull market instead.

Stay Safe, Invest Safe.

Mar 2020 Portfolio

I added some more counters only to be greeted by more selldown. Everyday I was bombarded with bad COVID19 news making me more nervous as the market became volatile as it hit limit down today and hit limit up the next day. Then the market made history in Mar 2020 for becoming the worst March ever. Through my short investing journey I had not seen this kind of market behaviour before. Looking at the paper loss also made me feel nauseous. But alas I am still saving up my bullets to take a shot at the market when it was a down day and hope that we can finally win this COVID19 war and market resume up to where it was. In the meantime, invest safe and stay safe during this tiring period.
