Before some retail traders thinking loud on how to poke these retail veteran investors who Buy, Hold, Sell Some, Buy back, Hold ... When these veteran retail investors looking back at those few buy and hold positions at their 70s and 80s. They smiled without any regrets. These stocks have served them well. Their decades of Panadols had paid for children university fund. Some Panadols have paid for these and that. It was a journey of investing with little or no regret. Investing has been good and "PASSIVE" for them. No need to every trading days staring at screen to set up this or that and then keeping fingers cross. For these "passive" investors, one click of Buy button and decades of Panadols dropping from the "Sky". Not passive then WHAT? Same as how these veteran grown in their human life : Growth, reaching their prime, stable, and then decline. At their 70s, 80s, and 90s when they are weak and knowing their time is up. Knowing how well they have done through their life journey through their own time and effort. Most will have little or no regret that they are NOT the best or richest. When we invest long enough for growth, prime, stable and decline. We will NOT regret!
