Losing Investments

Giving a bearish rating on StockTwits certainly brings out the crazies who think that name calling and swearing is good analysis. Or their goal maybe to discourage people from ever putting a bearish rating on one of their stocks again. Either way, this does not change facts.

The thing is, if you invest, some of your investments are not going to work out. When you are investing for capital gain, you seem to be more vulnerable to losses, at least that was my experience. When I was investing for capital gains, I had companies go south and also go bankrupt. What I did was try to learn a lesson and then move on. The thing is, I made more on the good investments than I lost on the bad ones.

I haven’t had as much trouble investing in dividend stocks. But bad things can happen. What I hated the most was when a good company was bought out and you had to sell

On my other blog I wrote yesterday about Le Chateau Inc (TSX-CTU, OTC-LCUAF) ... learn more. Next, I will write about K-Bro Linen Inc (TSX-KBL, OTC-KBRLF) ... learn more on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 around 5 pm.

Before making any investment decision, you should always do your own research or consult an investment professional. I do research for my own edification and I am willing to share. I write what I think and I may or may not be correct.

See my site for an index to these blog entries and for stocks followed. I have three blogs. The first talks only about specific stocks and is called Investment Talk. The second one contains information on mostly investing and is called Investing Economics Mostly. My last blog is for my book reviews and it is called Non-Fiction Mostly. Follow me on Twitter. I am on Instagram. Or you can just Google #walktoronto spbrunner8166 to see my pictures.
