Oh, I didn't check the actual value of the shares. I meant it as a tongue-in-cheek remark, since all shares seem to be in a free fall right now. Perhaps the Tata shares have fallen more than most. I think my loss is around 40 % now, but the stocks had been going up rather steeply until they started falling, which makes the fall seem even larger. Worst part is, I was saving for a new car. Perhaps I'll have to make do with a smaller car ;-)Interesting comment because I had taken the view that if my small portfolio had shed as much as Tata Motors I would be very depressed. Maybe I am a lucky stockpicker because my loss is not anything like as great as the fall that Tata Motors in the same period.
Honestly, we shouldn't panic. At least not if we have been behaving responsibly. You shouldn't invest more money, than you have, and you shouldn't risk more money, than you can afford to loose. And if you loose, then don't be too sad. You win some and you loose some. I'm sure the share prices will recover sooner or later, so we'll just have to be patient. A month ago I was offered the opportunity to prebook a VW ID.3. With all this Corona virus pandemic, Volkswagen and most other car manufacturers have closed their factories. The ID.3 could very well be delayed giving my shares more time to recover. There's always a silver lining. In the meantime, I'll have to keep driving my Jaguar XF V8. Poor me ;-)
