Worst Stocks

In a section of this report Money Sense talks about the 25 worst performing stock.

I must admit, I was invested in WorldCom when it when bankrupt and lost my invested month. I was also invested in Nortel. I sold half my stock at $84.60 in 2000 because I thought the price was getting stupid. It just went higher in the bull market, but this is what happens in a bull market. I sold the rest at $2.40 when the bull market was over.

You never like to lose money when investing, but it happens. However, a few losses did not hurt my overall portfolio. When investing, you are going to make mistakes and you going to lose some money on some stocks. However, what you do in your overall portfolio is what counts.

On my other blog I wrote yesterday about Ovintiv Inc (TSX-OVV, NYSE-OVV) ... learn more. Next, I will write about Dollarama Inc (TSX-DOL, OTC-DLMAF) ... learn more on Wednesday, October 25, 2023 around 5 pm.
