Hope you are doing well.
In any business the businessman talks only about the positives, more so when interacting with potential customers.
This is especially true of stock research business wherein most of the analysts hide the bad recommendations or periods of bad returns and highlight only the good part. In fact, the stock research business is famous for its notoriety wherein many analysts even put up fake performances.
However, as you may understand, investing in stocks isn't a smooth ride. There are periods when stocks don't perform, or there are times when one has to book losses in certain stocks. The same has happened with us as well and today we will share with you some of our biggest stock recommendation mistakes in terms of returns -

We did some number crunching and found that on an average 2 out of 10 recommended stocks have gone wrong and the average loss on the stocks that go wrong is around 27%.
However, the good part is that 8 still go right and the average gain on those 8 has been almost 10x at 276%.
Frankly speaking, no one wishes to incur loss on any investment; however, it's practically impossible and based on our readings even the best of the investors make money on only 6-8 opportunities out of 10. What matters though is how soon you are able to cut your losses and how much money you make on your profitable ones.
Disclaimer: Out of the stocks mentioned above, we have an ongoing coverage on Shemaroo and I personally hold Vaibhav Global.
