the whole market is brutal today, but still, RAD is leading on my pain factor today, that's for sure. Should've sold at 9. i debated it for a few days.... oh well, holding on for the next few years to recover i guess.
I'm not sure I'm a captain... I'm more like a stow-away who snuck into steerage :D I'm along for the ride... I put money in this high-risk vehicle knowing it was high-risk. I already wrote it off in my mind as a potential total loss. I'm only down a handful of percent after factoring in all the div's i've collected in the past few years. I don't think I want to pick up more right now, but that's only because i'm already exposed in the greater mREIT sector larger than most would consider sane (I'm in about 25% of my portfolio across multiple holdings).
I still think there's money to be made here in the long term. the market in it's entirety is going through some hurdles right now. I don't see interest rates moving to anything significant for a long time. Our global economy isn't working. I think the whole world is getting it finally. But it will get worse before it gets better.
If i was 55, i'd be worried about the next 10 years....
But I'm not, i'm 35. So i think I have time to continue to acquire good companies and ride it out so when the market does rally up again, i'll have a large pool in which to make a splash.
The whole market is a bloodbath today. down 5-6% on half my holdings. So, that said, i wouldn't sell a thing today. it's not how money is made... selling at lows is how you lose. i'm here for 15 years or, call in. whatever comes first.
