Koushik Nag: I am a small time investor and have the following stocks. I want to understand, whether there is any point holding them or I should come out of them?

Though, I am not in need of money currently and can stay invested. I am 50 years old. Working in a private company. With 2 kids pursuing education.

oscar dsouza: I am in the process of consolidating my overall portfolio and getting rid of some poor investments. These are the stocks that I have in my portfolio that i feel was an error and I should exit. Please let me know if you think the same or suggest that I hold these for the long term?

These were all bought approx in 2016 after which I moved brokers hence do not have the record of what price where they bought at. Regardless of profit or loss, if you feel that these are not good quality stocks to hold for the long term, I will exit these.
