    My biggest losers: Alibaba, Microsoft and Yandex. Lost more than 100% because sold too early.
    Lesson learned do not sold your winners.
    Buying price:
    Alibaba $60 sold $80
    Microsoft $37 sold $45
    Yandex $10 sold $20

    Thanks for your candid revealations of your losers. I wonder if those losers didn't have any
    hidden flaws that might have been overlooked. Thanks again.

    I REALLY, REALLY wish that when I want to look again at the 10 favorites, I didn't have to log in. Lots of sites with information more critical to keep private just say things like, " I see you're calling from a trusted computer device", or something like that, & let me continue as if they know me personally. If I didn't like Motley Fool, I'd be pretty miffed. It's a testament to your sincere kindness & abilities, I think, that some of us continue to support subscribe.

    I liked this, and sometimes I just listen because you seem genuine & well-meaning, but I really don't like the way my Fool widget works AT ALL. It may be that I wasn't charged for another month, but I'd just like to suggest that you take a look at how the Money Map Press widget works. I can go to a portfolio ( Michael Robinson), or recommendations section ( Bill Patalon), or to the very important UPDATES ( which I sometimes forget to read, leaving me with several stocks I should have sold), or I can go to articles. With my Fool icon, I LOVE the articles, but for pretty much everything else, I get, " Hmmm…..something seems to have gone wrong on our side." You're so polite, and I really do like that, but for people who don't get all their mail on their smart phone, don't have good memories, don't like to wait for the pc to boot up to check their records to see what's going on, or have a roommate/ husband who hogs it, it would really be better if you just went ahead & said, " Hmmm, it seems that your subscription may have expired." My husband is grading papers on the pc, so I guess I could call the bank before renewing, but I don't, usually; I just let it go, & then feel like I missed out ( & yes, pretty stupid)when something keeps going up, like SHOP, which I first hesitated to buy. Of course, if I paid for a year, maybe nothing would go wrong, but I'm not even sure of that, as it says, " Hmmm, something seems to have gone wrong on OUR side". ( But don't think for a second that I prefer another service over yours).

    useful if you could share what made you choose those shares in the first place (the analysis and thought process) and the mistakes that could be avoided in retrospect. Thanks!

    And yet again a great reminder that Fooling works despite some very „suboptimal“ picks. In the long run the returns prove the system right. Thank you for this honest an reflective video. Thumbs up! Fool on!
