Loss Aversion
Stay positive out there my friends!
post media
"Loss aversion is the observation that human beings experience losses asymmetrically more severely than equivalent gains" - I believe this is why some investors find it hard to let go of losers.

A common rational is "I will wait to break even", which is not a great reason to hold a stock.

Strong Q1’22 from $MELI
An impressive Q1 from MercadoLibre imo. High conviction long-term stock for me and very impressed with management.
I added to my $MELI position at $910 and it is now my top holding in the growth portfolio. I wouldn’t be opposed to adding more if it keeps falling.

April Portfolio Update
Sells: None

Looking at adding to my $MELI position soon in this pullback.

YTD return: -21.9%
  • What a tough month for the markets. Growth struggled again, but my LT confidence remains in these co's when sentiment reverts.
  • Going to be a busy week with lots of Q1 earnings releases.

*can't link portfolio on CS currently due to not being in US.

Zoom Out - investing over the long-term
It feels like we are on the LEFT over the past year and I believe the RIGHT will prevail soon and the high quality growth companies will emerge again out of this volatility.

YTD Sector Performance - Observations
A tough market for most sectors ex Energy. Do you think this will mean revert and when?

I am majority a tech & cons disc investor which has been tough YTD, but I see these sectors having long-term tailwinds and beneficiaries of innovation and globalization. Therefore, not changing my strategy based on short-term performance.

I am holding all selector funds that are above 200MA and waiting to take position if anything crosses 200MA.

Mid-April Update - Growth Portfolio:
  • No moves so far in April
  • Tough couple weeks for growth stocks, but my long term outlook remains optimistic
  • Planning to add to $UPST this coming week
  • Still very high confidence in these names over the next 3-5 years
