In order to maintain a healthy portfolio,
- We should learn from the mistakes rather than give up on set back.
- We should divide the portfolio to 5-7 positions so we can study those positions as well as keep the risk under control.
- Every stock has a pricing range. If the price of the stock breaks the range to go down, we need to be prepared to cut, instead of add position in the stock be careful about that, no matter we are in a winning or losing position.
- We should buy buyout-related stocks. The most suitable stock should have a definitive agreement, cash instead of stock proceeds, good financing, good regulatory approval prospects. However we can relax some of this criteria a bit to pursue some return.
- We should study how the prorate formula before it may apply on our positions.
- We should not use the unsettled proceeds to buy stock, because it impose unduly risk on the operation.
