After more than 17 years of following investors’ comments, postings, chats, and face to face talks with fellow retail investors; Uncle8888 has noted two common investing regrets among RETAIL investors.
(1) They sold their potential multi-baggers way too early for decent profits.
(2) They never sell their stocks at the high.
Most retail investors will eventually make either (1) or (2) or Both.

Which is the lesser evil?
(1) or (2)?
Once SOLD; it is GAME OVER! That is why selling is more difficult to master. Who has the skills to sell that many stocks near the high?
