You're not wrong.

Would have been a great return, but I wrote "followed", I didn't say that I had actually held the stock all that time. I was less foolish when I was younger, so I sold them several times thinking that they couldn't go higher. Ofcourse they did and I missed out on a lot of that potential return by being out of the stock for long periods....

Not sure if I'll ever learn but I think I am less likely to make that mistake again.
