My objective for this REIT is to hold it long-term and i still believe in this REIT. Should i be worrying at this downtrend?
Personally I'm in the same boat as you, buying into a couple of reits / trusts at their peaks and now watching them sink in the red. Hoping that eventually they'll rise back up somewhat and I can redeploy them elsewhere. That being said, if you decide to hold on based on your long term view of the counter, do ensure that you have the holding power and you don't need to drawdown on this portfolio for near future expenses. But if the management is making a mess of the reit, exit and redeploy elsewhere. Hope this helps
My rule whether in short term trading or long term holding on when to cut loss is this.
When the fundamentals or technical chart invalidates your analysis then its time to cut.
depends a few factors
Do you have holding power to hang on the the reit long term ?
Are the core business of the reit sound and have stable grow in the portfolio ?
do you need the money anytime soon ?
Will investing in other investments reap you more ?
If 1,2 is true: i would personally hold on
if 3,4 is true: I would cut lost and reinvest
