So when should one consider selling their shares in the stock market?
During the last seminar we had, below are some points shared by the speaker Aya Laraya about selling:
1. Do not sell out of boredom.
2. Sell when you reach your target – That’s why you need to have a plan for every buy you make,
3. Never use long term investing as a security blanket.
I think this is the most common scenario we see. When they see their losses are already big, they cannot accept that they just made a mistake so what’s supposedly a trade suddenly becomes an investment. They pat themselves and say “Long-term naman e”.
I was actually once like that. Simply put, don’t be a convertible shareholder.
So for those who are still mustering the courage of selling your stocks at a loss, Aya stressed out the
possible reasons why to do so:
1. If a company consistently underperforms.
2. If there is a fundamental change in the company/industry
In the end, he gave below thoughts to ponder on:
1. Know what you want to accomplish
2. Ask your broker, get information
3. Don’t rely on tips -make your own decisions
4. Long term does not mean not monitoring
It is not the “picking” that makes money; it is the selling at the right time to take profits, or perhaps more important, to protect your capital. Selling is the hardest decision an investor must make.
Do you agree?
