Peter Lynch - Dealing With a Falling Stock

One of the most frequent questions received from my readers : “The share I bought recently, the price is falling. Should I cut loss or buy more?” My reply will always be : “Why did you buy this share in the first place?”
 
 
I think this is the most basic question one have to ask themselves when investing in a particular stock. If you do not know why you buy the share or you have absolutely no sound justification to invest, you are as good as flying blind. Hence, why am I emphasising this now? Because this question will determine whether one should average down / buy more of the same stock where the price is falling. Buying a stock that is trending up is easy - you simply just chase. However, buying a falling stock is truly an art that is very hard to master. Have a look at this video by Peter Lynch.
