This year has been (thankfully) pretty mistake-free for me. Yay! The one big mistake was buying a small float pink sheet issue (STHJF.PK)and not checking the price history. Almost immediately, it tanked over the next several weeks to between a 30-40% paper loss. It's purely a small, speculative investment that may still pay off, so I'm not sweating it, but it annoys me that I missed this factor.
