Avoid Stop Loss


Before I tell you why I do not use stop loss let me tell you one thing about me.
I am a vegetarian.
My family is a pure vegetarian.

For pure vegetarian any meal which has even 0.1 % of meat or flesh, is treated as non vegetarian.
Pure vegetarian never mix non vegetarian with vegetarian food.

Why am I telling you this ?  Below transcript with my cousin brother, let's call him AG, will make it more clear. In fact it is AG who encouraged me to create this Share market tutorial.  
AG : Till which price do you average out when share price falls.
ME : If it is good undervalued stock, there is no lower limit.
AG : You must be joking, you should use STOP LOSS else you would get broke soon. Did you average on YES BANK
ME : I told you good undervalued stock ! Yes Bank was not good company. Better learn how to value stocks !
      Also I do not know how to value financial institutions, it is beyond my circle of competency.
AG : But YES BANK was a turn around company.
ME : Success on turn around rarely happen, if you are betting on turn around, you are speculating not investing.
AG : Why not use stop loss ?
ME : With undervalued good stock if the price falls, it becomes more undervalued. Why will I want to sell it ?
      I do not mix Fundamental Analysis with Technical analysis (Plz read Stock trading vs Stock investing).
      Stop Loss is a Stock Trader tool not an Investor tool !
AG : How many times you burned doing this ?
ME : In long term, only once with Nandan Denim, but the lesson which it taught me, improved my Stock market probability of earning.

When I do invest, I don't care if the stock price goes from $10 to $2, but I do care if the VALUE went from $10 to $2.Mr Warren Buffett

In this chapter we will learn about one more financial ratio which improved my Stock market probability of earning perhaps to 45-50%.

I found undervalued stock, Nandan Denim, using Financial ratio filters. It is in textile industry and was doing well from 2014 to 2017. Its professionally flashy, annual reports boasted of high growth. The company was good, management seemed promising. I invested.

I started investing in this since Nov 2018 as above. As Share price fell, I kept accumulating with a hope that company is getting more under valued. There was something which the share market investors knew and I did not.
I learned it after burning !

In Share market people have lost more money by holding to bad companies than by buying them ! Once I knew my mistake, I admitted it, learned from it, improved and BOOKED LOSS !
While I never use Stop loss, I BOOK LOSS (sell in loss and do not hold),  if I find later, that I bought BAD Company or company stopped performing (Plz read Small Cap vs Mid Cap vs Large Cap Stocks) !

I know I cannot be 100% accurate and understanding this limitation is important in Stock Investment !

I applied the same knowledge and kept averaging many shares specially during COVID Share market crash, one of them was GHCL Limited as above.
