Dog portfolio doing well

If only we could time the market perfectly. As Pace shoots up it is now almost back to par for me. RM effectively halved under me as I bought into my position then rebounded into profit and Game fell a third before a recovery to trail single figures behind. Im pretty sure they will be fat winners in some distant future, but even bit of better timing would have bagged a fat profit on all these companies.

My dog portfolio is doing well again today.

Yet you have to accept you can’t time the market. 2008’s big winner for me was Menzies, a 5 bagger. It could have been a 10 bagger as it halved after I loaded up. It went from nuppence to next-tonuppence then shot up back to old levels. So I have to forget the lost 500% profit as I’m good but not that good to catch the bottom of the bottom.

I simply rely on the belief my stocks are stupidly cheap and that while a couple might fail others will double and triple and on balance leave me a 30% or so annual return. While I continue to miss the bottom and bail out to early I will console myself with that prospect.
