2 Dec 2017 (AFR) – Godfreys in fresh turmoil even before Amazon – Godfreys sucks it up as shares hit record low

[COMMENT: It is very unfortunate for any investors still stuck holding this stock, who might have “believed in the company…”. But the real truth is that astute investors and traders would have watched the chart from week to week, and noticed when it fell below its IPO price (of $2.75 on 10th December 2014). This happened in September 2015. The accompanying candlestick share price chart shows several weekly candles sitting above a support level of about $3, before continuing the downtrend from its highs of about $3.50. The downtrend continued, and has not stopped yet. The chart shows plenty of signals and opportunities for investors to cut their losses, and protect their capital from further downside. Hopefully this is a useful lesson for those who lost some money this time.]
