My father often mentioned a saying to the effect of
" being broke is a temporary state of affairs... being poor is a state of
couldn't help but remember that on reading these posts..
By the way - Snoopy if you is reading this - I never did manage to pick
up any NZE shares - had the opportunity to get in at 24c but blew it playing
hardball in the depthlist -sat on the top with a 22c bid...
Still, to allude to an earlier post of yours... NZE is a company
that I love to watch and not a company that I have fallen in love
with...regardless of wether I hold NZE or watch it, I gain a lot of pleasure
from the relationship...
wrt holding shares one has fallen in love with...esp when they are biting
you in the *ss ( something I am sure plenty of posters have been guilty
of at some stage).... I have made a couple of tough calls in the management of
my portfolio by refusing to fall in love with the company - but falling in
love with the bottom line of my portfolio (figuratively speaking of course) -
that way - if something is hurting my beloved - they are easy to dispense
with, especially when compared to someone who would help nurture and grow
her...still aint easy though and I am still a holder of BGR !... but
thats another story .....
