TEL Me Where It Hurts – When Buy and Hold Hurts Your Investments

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Investments, Stock Market 101, Fundamental Analysis, Stocks, UITF / Mutual Funds, Technical Analysis, Personal Finance

What happened to TEL shows how Buy and Hold (Forever) can hurt Juan’s investments. Those who bought TEL in 2006, hoping to gain much from it, will be depressed to see that after 10 years, there wasn’t any capital appreciation. Wasted time. Wasted paper gains all those years. I hope not a lot of people did that. Though again, a small compensation is the dividends so in that sense, it is still a lot better off than time deposits (even if invested capital did not appreciate).

After the long bullish candle to start Feb, SSI did not gain much ground in the succeeding trading days. But it seems to be forming a flag waiting for a break on the narrowing channel. Waiting for newcomers?
