Greetings,

This is intended to be a LTBH portfolio except that a stop loss limit of 10% will be imposed on all the stocks to limit the downside.


My experience is that this is probably the surest way to peg your returns at minus 10%. That's when you sell. I would spend my time drilling down into the businesses rather than trying some arbitrary sell criterion.

YMMV.

Regards,
Stan
