* Note: Excluded from the list might have been stocks that were thinly traded in Jan 2016.

Unless you had margin calls or were struck by some form of permanent or semi-permanent financial damage, one month's bad results don't count for much in the long term.

Market volatility -- sometimes violent volatility -- is simply to be expected from time to time.

And the market is perking up today as we write.


May your stock holdings recover in due course, and may you find gems selling at low prices. 

More important, may each episode of the market teach us valuable lessons about market psychology, valuation, and more in our long investment journey.
