I'm disappointed in myself that I sold a bunch of stocks while they were in the death throes of Covid by putting too much weight into the opinions of veteran investors on investing forums saying the end is nigh bail while you still can.
I did realize my mistake fairly quickly and get back in many of the same growth names and am up nicely but still disappointed because would have been a lot better off if I'd have just held through the whole mess. Harvested a lot of capital gains that I had to pay taxes on also.
