It’s that time of year; everything seems to be winding down, everyone is looking forward to a well deserved break over Christmas and time becomes scarce as free moments are taken up with shopping for gifts, writing cards to relatives you haven’t spoke to all year, and of course, eating all those cakes and mince pies. It is a great time to look back over the year and contemplate the good times and the bad times, to hopefully learn some new lessons for next year.
For the purposes of this article, I’m going to focus on some of the companies I’ve followed this year, who’s stock prices have rocketed. Unfortunately for me, I have either sold too soon, or not bought at all. I’ve tried to hold back the tears while writing this.
