I have always said that equity have outperformed every asset class provided it has been done for long term and continuous investment been made with basic checks.
Is it so bad to see some stocks fall hugely? We have seen a number of stocks roll over and play nearly dead, losing more than 90% of their value in a few years. And then we thank our stars that we don’t own them. (And if we do, we don’t tell anyone until after 3 pegs)
