With 2 weeks to go, I guess it is natural for many of us to go into some reflection moments. I got some unforgettable hard knocks in my investment journey this year that I thought I would share. This is my first post and when I have more inspiration, I may pen a few more to come in the coming fortnight.

First = EHT

Coming on the back of Hyflux, Noble, I should have been more careful with Eagle Hospitality Trust. But the fact that it is a Reit and with DBS as its trustee probably lured me into some form of complacency.

I don’t blame them, I blame myself for being greedy.

I managed to cut some loss and reduce my exposure before their shares were suspended but what remains stuck today is still a sizeable chunk and of course, its very painful. Its a major lesson learned for me.
