2011 -- A learning year in review

January 04, 2012 – Comments (0)

Failure is a painful teacher......the sting of the correction bites hard, but its lessons are often learned the best.    I have several years of investing under my belt.     I've seen quite a few things.   I have a process and discipline and accountability in my investing processes.    I've never seen anything like what happened in Chinese small-caps in 2011.    I took a beating.   I felt foolish.   I wrote a lot of blogs that I hope a lot of people ignored touting a number of BAD Chinese stocks and companies.    I wrote and re-wrote and re-wrote the rules of engagement on how to profit from these stocks.....and I was wrong.....wrong....wrong.    CCME was the end-game for me for Chinese stocks.  Over a two-year span, I made OK money on Chinese stocks....not market-beating in a very up market, but money.    But that is after the up AND the down.    The up was not in 2011.  That was the down part.   2011 was my first red year in the market vs the S&P.    [more]
