My core positions have not been faring well recently except for Vodafone. Today Wellpoint joined the party and is down 5% (although I wrote covered calls against the position a couple of weeks back that are helping ease the pain). My main goal is to get through this difficult period in tact. I believe the names I own are great values and I want to be able to see these positions through. This has meant trading less because I do not want to add to my losses.
The most important thing in investing is living to play another day. Luckily, I had a very strong start to the year so my recent losses have turned a great year into a good year. Once I weather this storm I look forward to being more aggressive with my trading.
