Sep 7, 2017 Many of the stocks I talked about here nearly 4 years ago no longer exist. A number of them were bought out or went private, and a couple here and there eventually went bankrupt. I sold out of some of them years ago, and I greatly reduced the $ I had in energy and in more speculative holdings about a year after this thread started. I also got completely out of Chinese stocks a couple of years ago, and have very little $ in very few of them to this day. Another funny thing is that I've gradually added small amounts of a large number of stocks to my portfolios since then - despite my "bearishness" that evolved into an "agnostic" attitude towards the broad markets that has become "cautiously optimistic" in more recent times. Google has been my largest holding for a while now, and most other holdings are significantly smaller.
