Transaction Statistics

Transaction Statistics:
  • Over 10,000 transactions for 104 different stocks.
  • 61 stocks have been winners (59%) and 43 stocks have been losers (41%).
  • 42 symbols are no longer listed in the markets. Assume they are out of business, have been acquired, went private or something similar.
  • Overall, averaged holding a purchase for about 18 days. However:
    • Between the years 1999 and 2010 held each purchase for about 1 day.
    • Between the years 2011 and 2014 held each purchase for about 6 days.
    • Since 2015 held each purchase for about 60 days.
Blaming my competitive and hopelessly optimistic nature, I've held my losers a heck of a lot longer than I've held my winners. Using a STOP-LOSS has been one of the most important lessons learned.
