"I know there are ups and downs, just was not ready for such a down so quickly."

It's called RISK. Maybe you ought to get to know your tolerance for it. Then, maybe you can make better decisions about how to invest your money.

Do you know why your stocks went down? Did they go down more than the relevant market? I believe successful investing in individual stocks requires a bit more than just acting on someone else's recommendations and predictions. Some people believe that it is more luck than skill and invest in the entire market to minimize the risk.

Good luck.
