My first purchase of Vermilion Energy Inc. (TSX:VET, NYSE:VET) shares was in the second half of 2019 at around C$27.
I was chasing yield (whoa, 15% dividends!) and didn’t read financial reports (debt, what debt?).
Basically, I sucked at stock investments back then even more than I suck now. The timing was very bad, and COVID with lockdowns was just 8 months away.
My 15% dividends turned into 0% and the stock price dropped to as low as ~C$3 in the middle of 2020.
