In order to justify the effort of selecting individual stocks, it’s worth striving to beat the returns from a market index fund. But every investor is virtually certain to have both over-performing and under-performing stocks. At this point some shareholders may be questioning their investment in Tian Teck Land Limited (HKG:266), since the last five years saw the share price fall 38%. And it’s not just long term holders hurting, because the stock is down 31% in the last year. Furthermore, it’s down 15% in about a quarter. That’s not much fun for holders. However, one could argue that the price has been influenced by the general market, which is down 7.9% in the same timeframe.
