Second, I’ve been investing on my own without noticing what gurus or analysts are saying or buying. In fact, I have noticed that when everyone agrees on a stock that looks cheap, this stock is not cheap anymore, whatever the metric are saying, giving you no better chance than the average to beat the market. And beating the market is not a option.
In the next articles, I’ll track over time the return of my previous articles to show you the record of the stock I’ve recommended.
I personally have kept a track record of 20.45% since February 2007 to this date, with almost 75% of value invested in stock and around 25% in bonds when the crash happened. This is why you need to
know the core of the business before investing and have a plan when things get bad.
Personal stock I would suggest you to take a look at:
Canada: Trading on the TSE: Fairfax Financial (FFH), holding period 20 years to forever
19/06/2012 RIM => 10.96 buy
China: Trading in Hong Kong: Anta Sports Products (2020), holding period two to ten years
12/01/201 => 8.62
20/03/2012 =>8.35 = -3.13% => Buy more
10/10/201 =>6.38 =>-25.9% Buy much more
BUY at 41.80 the 12/01/2012
SELL at 41.80 the 13/02/2012 Return = 0%
