Watch out for second quarter results ended 30 June 2013, can some companies surprise on the upside (or on the downside)? Will share prices decline further bringing the STI down much more or have we seen the bottom? When is a good time to pick battered stocks or is it a time to cut losses? How about holding these stocks and ride through this period of volatility? Difficult questions.
